Science and engineering are international endeavours and therefore the free movement of ideas and people plays a critical role in their success. Part of the reason for the UK’s global pre-eminence in these fields is our current and historical ability to attract the world’s most talented minds, from university students to experienced professionals.

Our work focuses on examining how changes to visa provisions, settlement rights and immigration caps, among other issues, may affect our members and the wider sector, and advocating for policies that would support a thriving sector.
