The result of the referendum on the UK's membership of the EU highlighted, for example, the need for a comprehensive reflection on questions related to identity, belonging, governance and populism in the UK and the EU. In this context, our activities are geared towards shedding light on changing sentiments within and towards Europe, informing the negotiations regarding the UK's future relationship with the EU, including on issues pertaining to research and innovation, as well as exploring the challenges related to the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
More broadly, our activities aim to underscore the importance of, and further enhance, research collaboration and mobility between the UK and other European countries.

The British Academy’s Briefings explore the challenges and the key issues related to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU within the context of research and innovation and UK-Ireland relations. These briefings intend to raise awareness of the topics and questions that need consideration and/or responses as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU.
European Research and Collaboration
Scholarship, research and innovation are central to the UK’s economic, social and cultural well-being. They flourish in long-term and interconnected frameworks that support people, collaborations, resources and regulation. The EU provides such frameworks for the humanities and the social sciences and helps to strengthen excellence in these disciplines.
