As Scotland’s national academy, The Royal Society of Edinburgh is delighted that the Prime Minister has reached an agreement that will secure UK institutions’ access to Horizon Europe funding. It is not only a financial support mechanism, but ensures easier and more fruitful scientific collaboration, which we will all benefit from. I believe that UK institutions will breathe a sigh of relief at this news, and now we can all focus our collective intellectual mettle on the challenges at hand.
