Scientists in the EU


As a website dedicated to the sharing of scientific knowledge, research and factual information, writing a piece on politics is breaking new ground for
Scienvy. It’s uncharted territory, and in truth a bit of a risk expressing a personal opinion on a subject as monumental as the imminent referendum. However, I feel as though factual information is something that has been severely lacking from both sides of the Brexit campaign in the past few months.

This isn’t going to be a piece focusing on scaremongering of impending economic crises, and won’t even mention the topic of immigration. This post will focuses on how science works within the EU at the moment, and why from a scientific - and personal standpoint - it is essential that you vote to remain on the 23rd of June.
