Book your place at this event where Professor Paul Boyle will chair a panel of experts and MEPs discussing the potential impact of Brexit on our region.

The free event, which is being held on Monday 6 November at City Hall from 5.30-7pm will discuss the implications of Brexit from a local perspective.

Questions that the expert panel will be considering include how will Britain's departure from the EU affect businesses in the city and county? What will be the dangers and pitfalls to avoid, the opportunities to seize?

The panel of experts, listed below, will draw on their commercial, political and academic expertise to consider the complicated implications of the momentous decision to leave the European Union.

Professor Paul Boyle European expertise is without question. As International Champion of Research Councils UK, which has responsibility for international strategy on behalf of all seven UK research councils; and former President of Science Europe, which represents over 50 European funding agencies, he is one of only four UK Vice-Chancellors who regularly lobby at the highest levels in the EU Parliament. He has made clear his support for the UK having associate partnership of research framework programmes such as Horizon 2020 and initiatives such as the Erasmus student exchange programme.

Places at the event are limited, so make sure you reserve your place today.
