It seems that the main issues that have been identified as reasons for voting to leave the EU were concerns about mass immigration; about the amount of money the UK was paying to the EU; and a loss of sovereignty over UK laws. This means that when deciding which projects to continue funding and working on, we must not violate any of these concerns. However, these are not concrete. We need to have more voices telling us why they voted to leave, or which institutions they think it would be...

Britain has voted to leave the European Union, be that as it may, cooperation between the Union and the UK can still happen. People did not vote for an end of relations and projects, only for a divorce with the EU. The United Kingdom takes advantage of many of the European projects, a wonderful example is the Erasmus program, giving students the opportunity to study overseas. Many projects have been very successful, for instance the European Regional Development Fund ( ERDF ). Such...

With article 50 envoked there are some serious questions to be asked about farm subsidies. These subsidies are provided by the EU, contriting to farmers annual invoke and investments in their farm. The potential of loosing these subsidies will have a direct impact on these farmers live and their farming abilities. The government need to ensure they continue supporting this key sector within the UK.

Scientific information, its technologies, and research principles should not be divided post-Brexit. Last year, the opening of the Francis Crick Institute demonstrated the significant advantages of working across borders to develop research that is beneficial to all. As the biggest single biomedical laboratory in Europe, the Institute has discovered mutations in cancer and the immune system and developed new methods to fight malaria amongst many of its great achievement, all of which would...

Many fear that Brexit could end the British creative industry as we know it. It could mean leaving the EU-funding program called Creative Europe , which has benefitted almost 10 per cent of British art and culture projects –  over £ 10 million in 2014. And no replacement has yet been announced. In addition, the future of the tax relief program for the creative industries, intellectual property rights or income based on resale and licensing, is thrown into question. The creative...

To maintain their world-leading universities the UK should participate in the Horizon2020 Programme (EU Research and Innovation Programme) and the European Research Council (ERC).  Erasmus+ has allowed UK students and staff to visit EU universities, and vice versa, and is important for the future is, but access to other parts of the Horizon2020 should also be mentioned. The UK is the country participating on most Horizon2020 projects and only Germany has received more funding....

The EU has recently structured lots of funding on multi-annual plans. The various negotiators have to remember to prioritise the people who are receiving funding, rather than try to have the "best" deal. Lots of the funding goes to vulnerable, deprived areas and we can't let them down!

For me, Brexit is a brilliant case for illustrating how policy narratives powerfully affect and shape public opinion. Multiple arguments were framed in highly contrasting ways. On the one side, strong EU-UK relations for a strong economy and prosperous labour market opportunities and, on the other side, strong EU-UK relations as strong constraints on UK national policy making, interfering deep into national sovereignty, especially in the matter of migration politics. These policy narratives...

Brexit does not mean to cut down on opportunities. UK nationals should be able to access the Erasmus programme. UK status should be similar to the one held by the Associate Countries. The Higher  Education field in UK would also benefit from the arrival of EU nationals deciding to work or study in Great Britain's universities.  At the same time, EU should allow and foster UK nationals access to education on the continent. This measure should not violate the principle of equality....
