Although the outcomes of the Brexit are still uncertain, it is likely that the whole process will pose several challenges to the UK higher education sector. This event will gather academics, practitioners and stakeholders, who will discuss the potential impacts on higher education policies, academic institutions, and the future of research and innovation stemming from the UK’s departure from the European Union.
