What impact will Brexit have on scientific research? Will the UK suffer in terms of innovation and talent? And can any positives be taken from the democratic decision to leave the European Union? Dr Mike Galsworthy is the founder of Scientists for EU, a lobbying group set up before last year’s referendum to try and educate both government - and the public - on the pros and cons of voting In or Out. Mike joins Tim to outline the importance of scientific research to a healthy UK economy and discusses his fears of a hard Brexit.
