Brexit Hurts Our Scientists Too

I realise I’m just flagging up another Independent article, but as someone who firmly supports scientific progress and cooperation, this really does take the biscuit. “UK scientists are being stripped of leadership roles for Europe-wide projects…The EU has told a Cambridge University astrophysicist studying the Milky Way that he cannot be in charge of a new project – because the UK is not part of the £80bn Horizon Europe programme.” Alongside all the damage it’s doing to Northern Ireland Peace, the UK economy, and so many other things, Brexit is rendering our scientists irrelevant and excluded from the mainstream discourse, unable to take the active leadership roles they used to have. This travesty surely cannot be allowed to continue.
