Joint report shows importance of EU funding for UK research

A new joint report commissioned by the UK’s four national academies — the British Academy, the Academy of Medical Sciences, the Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Royal Society — shows the importance of EU funding for UK research.

Simon Keay, BSR Research Professor in Archaeology and Fellow of The British Academy says ‘[EU grants] have enabled major new scientific advances to be made, the creation of vital new international research collaborations that would not have been otherwise possible, and opened up other possible areas of funding’.
