Thomson Reuters Shows Role of EU in International Collaboration of Researchers

On Thursday June 23, 2016, a referendum on the United Kingdom’s continued membership in the European Union will be held, potentially resulting in Britain’s exit from the EU.

Referred to as a “Brexit,” the decision could have a major impact on both the UK and the EU. The Royal Society, the UK’s independent scientific academy, recently published a study that aimed to gather evidence about the EU’s influence on scientific research collaboration and mobility. The main finding of the study? If the UK chooses to exit the Union, it will affect the mobility of UK-based scientists and their collaborations.
