Science and Innovation must remain at the heart of the Brexit process
From the approximately 129,000 Spanish nationals live in the UK, 3,500 are researchers working at universities. This figure rises to 5,000 when considering Spanish scientists working in other R&I public institutions, companies and administration. With over 640 members, the Society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom (SRUK/CERU) represents a large proportion of Spanish nationals working in R&I. We at SRUK/CERU have been monitoring the challenges and opportunities associated with Brexit and their impact on Spanish researchers in the UK. Here are the results from our surveys and our submissions for calls for evidence of the UK Parliament.
