Brexit webinar series on higher education and research: The October deadline

5 Nov 2018, 13:30 - 14:30
Please join Universities UK International (UUKi) and the UK Government’s Science and Innovation Network (SIN) for our second Brexit Webinar where we will discuss the October European Council Summit which will take place on 18 October 2018. 

This summit is the initial, and preferred, deadline for the conclusion of the exit negotiations. This means that the UK and the EU should at that point have agreed on the terms of the withdrawal and on the contents of a high-level political statement on the future relationship. Depending on the speed of the negotiations this webinar will either discuss the reached agreement and the implications for HE&R, or in case an agreement has not been reached yet, discuss the progress that has been made with the October summit and discuss what still needs to be agreed at the special November European Council summit.

Sign up here.
