International research collaboration after the UK leaves the European Union

International collaboration is integral to creating world class research with impact, and it is vital that UK-based researchers have the ability, support and resources to collaborate with the best partners – wherever they may be.

This paper sets out some initial views on the opportunities and challenges that exist for UK research in the post-Brexit landscape. It suggests ways in which the government, research funders and universities can build on our globally recognised research excellence to support and enable international research collaborations that enhance the quality, prestige and impact of UK-based research and researchers.​
