EU referendum report
The recent referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU has significant implications for the molecular bioscience community, with key considerations ranging from funding to free movement of labour and potential for collaboration. In order to help inform the Biochemical Society’s policy activities in this area, an online survey was carried out in February 2016 to capture the views and experiences on this important issue of researchers working in molecular bioscience. We were delighted with the enthusiastic response to the questionnaire and would like to thank those who took part.
This report provides a summary of the findings from this survey.
A collated list of resources with information relevant to the European and EU context for UK life sciences, collated by the Royal Society of Biology, is available online.
