Brexit and Swedish universities, event and new report
10 March 2017
On 8 March 2017, EUA Secretary General Lesley Wilson spoke at an event on Brexit and the consequences for Swedish research and higher education.
The event is organised by the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) and the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis (Tillväxtanalys), who have recently published a report about Brexit and Swedish universities.
The contribution from EUA looked further than Brexit and raised questions about the challenges that the new nationalist tendencies, including the Trump presidency, raise for the university sector. The event was chaired by former EUA Vice-President Christina Ullenius.
