March 5, 2018

Brexit is likely have a negative impact on research collaborations as well as student and researcher mobility, and funding for universities in Europe, according to a new report published by the Centre for Global Higher Education, a research partnership of international universities, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and based at the UCL Institute of Education. CEU researchers Kata Orosz and Norbert Sabic contributed.

The report is based on a series of interviews with academic staff, university leaders and policymakers in higher education across 10 European countries between April and November 2017. Orosz and Sabic conducted the survey and interviews in Hungary. Hungarian responses were mixed, ranging from reports of an immediate, tangible negative impact to concerns about potentially negative impact in the future to an attitude of business as usual and a potentially positive impact in certain areas of collaboration in the future.
