​Universities UK International and the FCO Science and Innovation Network (SIN) are joining forces to keep the UK and European higher education and research sectors up to date on the developments in Brexit in the year to come. 

Starting Thursday 20 September, UUKi and the SIN Network will host webinars every other month during this crucial year to discuss the state of play and the consequences of the negotiations for the higher education and research sectors. This first webinar serves as a run through of where we are at the moment, what we still need and the timeline for the coming months. 

Guest speakers in this episode were: 

  • Anne-May Jassen, Head of European Engagement, Universities UK International  
  • Christina Miller, Director, UKRO
  • Chris Bradley, Regional Director for Europe, Russia and Turkey at UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN)

The following webinars will discuss crucial decision-making moments in the exit process, such as the October European Council summit, the ratification period by both the UK parliament as well as the European Parliament, the actual exit on 29 March 2019 and following that the implementation period.
