New joint European Statement on the Unity of Science

The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, the Académie des Sciences and the Royal Society have published a joint statement underlining the importance of scientific cooperation between the United Kingdom and other European countries.

Professor Richard Catlow, Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society and Vice-President of EASAC said:

“Science is a global endeavour and is built on collaboration, mobility and the exchange of ideas. At a time when the UK’s future relationship with the European Union is uncertain, the Royal Society, Leopoldina and Académie des Sciences have come together to reaffirm the importance of the unity of scientific research in Europe, and the willingness for scientists in the UK, France and Germany and across Europe to continue to collaborate in future.”
