Following the UK's referendum on European Union (EU) membership, the British Council has decided to deliver an important series of face-to-face and digital events bringing together institutional and policy leaders from the education, culture, arts and science sectors in Europe.

Stakeholders were invited:

  • to share professional perspectives on the sector gains of European collaboration
  • to jointly agree ways of maintaining the best possible relationships
  • and, where relevant, to make practical proposals that might assist the formal EU-UK discussions.

Participants proposed sector recommendations for policy-makers in Europe to help sustain the vibrancy and vitality that now characterises European collaboration in arts, culture, science and education.
