Universities have not “risen up to the challenge” of how to replace European research opportunities after Brexit, universities minister Sam Gyimah has warned.

Speaking at the annual conference of the vice-chancellors’ group Universities UK (UUK), Gyimah told journalists that universities are overly focused on how to reproduce their relationships with the European Union, particularly in research mobility and funding.

“Our challenge is not just how do we replicate what we had in the EU, our challenge is how we go beyond that and succeed, and I think on that debate universities have not risen up to the challenge,” he said.
