A post-Brexit agreement for research and innovation

What is the future of EU's and UK's relationship on research and innovation?

January 28, 2020, 9:30 am Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels Public | On the Record Livestreamed Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

Bruegel and the Wellcome Trust have completed an ambitious simulated negotiation for a post-Brexit agreement on research and innovation. At this event, we will publish the project report, which tells the story of the negotiation process and makes clear recommendations for the UK Government and EU institutions on how best to tackle the EU-UK future relationship on research and innovation. It also includes the agreement text our exercise produced.

The launch event will feature a live link-up between simultaneous events in Brussels and London. A high-level representative of the EU Commission will give a keynote address in Brussels which will be livestreamed in London. Questions will be taken from audiences in both cities. Subsequently, panel members involved in the project will present and discuss the results of the exercise.

The event will be livestreamed. There is no need to register for the livestream.

How could net balances change in the next EU budget?

The gap between payments into the EU budget and EU spending in a particular country has importance when EU spending does not constitute European public goods, or there are risks for their improper use. I estimate that the Juncker Commission’s proposal for the next seven-year budget would lead to big reductions (as a share of GNI) in the net payments to most central European countries, while the changes for other countries seem small

Could the U.S. economy be experiencing a hidden tech-driven productivity revolution?

The UK election viewed from continental Europe: Meh

It will take more than the vote on December 12 to make the continent pay attention to the UK. Viewed from the continent, the UK election is one more episode in a Brexit series that “jumped the shark” long ago.

Work Protection in the Digital Age: Towards a new social contract

Over the past few years, new business models have emerged, empowered by digital technologies. These have disrupted a range of activities, from food delivery and transportation to accommodation and venture capital.
