A post-Brexit agreement for research and innovation

What is the future of EU's and UK's relationship on research and innovation?

Date: January 28, 2020, 9:30 am Topic: Digital economy and innovation

Bruegel and the Wellcome Trust have completed an ambitious simulated negotiation for a post-Brexit agreement on research and innovation. At this event, the project report was published, which tells the story of the negotiation process and makes clear recommendations for the UK Government and EU institutions on how best to tackle the EU-UK future relationship on research and innovation. It also includes the agreement text our exercise produced.

The launch event featured a live link-up between simultaneous events in Brussels and London. A high-level representative of the EU Commission gave a keynote address in Brussels which was livestreamed in London. Questions were taken from audiences in both cities. Subsequently, panel members involved in the project presented and discussed the results of the exercise.

Hence the focus shifts from a quantitative to a qualitative perspective.
