CaSE has responded to today's publication of 'no-deal' Brexit scenario guidance papers by the UK Government.

Commenting, CaSE Deputy Director Naomi Weir said: 

"Today's papers represent vital preparations and plans that I hope are never called upon. That research and innovation feature in so many of the notices from Horizon2020 to nuclear research and medicines regulation, not to mention cross cutting issues on mobility and trade, is another demonstration of the need for a strong agreement on science in the negotiations."
