In our Science Policy Department we aim to defend the interests and rights of Spanish scientists both in the UK and in Spain. We act as the face of SRUK/CERU to deal with institutions, organisations or political parties.

We are an open and diverse committee with members from different disciplines and varied levels of research experience, who have knowledge of the research career in several European countries.

Our initiatives

Spanish I+D system

Based on our knowledge of the British I+D system, we regularly submit recommendations to foster the Spanish I+D system.

Brexit negotiations

We have took an active role in defending the interests and rights of Spanish scientists during the Brexit negotiations.
