EU-UK 2.png

The scene of United Kingdom leaving the European Union has had a undeniable impact in our PARSUK community, not only in the science, investigation and superior education context but also in the rights of the european citizens in British lands.

Since the results of the referendum in 2016, we have been aware of the negotiations that will define the future of the relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union, actively participating in debates with counterparts organisations looking for answers for the needs of our members.

Our priorities centralise in the establishment of a common agenda for the science and investigation, mobility programs and financial help for students and investigators, as well as the mutual recognition of the regulatory patterns between European Union and the United Kingdom.

Some examples of our activities include:​​
