UK reaffirms commitment to Square Kilometre Array

A representative of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has confirmed that the UK will continue to support the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope project despite the UK’s vote to leave the European Union.

Speaking at a meeting of the SKA Organisation’s Board of Directors at the SKA headquarters at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire, Adam Baker said that the UK’s commitment to the project had not changed.

“We are still deeply committed to the SKA and its success,” said Baker. He noted that Jo Johnson, the minister for universities and science, had made similar comments in a speech at the Wellcome Trust on 30 June, including a “specific reference to the SKA”.
