The national “in” campaign, to be called Britain Stronger in Europe, has announced its board.
Professor Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and Vice-President of Universities UK has joined the board alongside leading figures from business, the arts, media, defence, education and politics to campaign to keep Britain in Europe.
On her appointment to the campaign board, she said: “I am proud to be part of the campaign to keep Britain in Europe. Britain’s outstanding universities are stronger in Europe. This should matter to everyone because universities are about the future prosperity of the UK – driving the economy, creating jobs and enhancing our society.”
“Being in Europe means we can achieve greater impact from our ground-breaking research, improving people’s lives through advances and discoveries. Pooling resources, expertise and data, we can achieve more together than we could alone.”
“In the European Union, universities can provide more life-changing opportunities for British students and staff, equipping them with the knowledge and skills they, and the UK, needs to succeed.”
Universities UK recently launched a Universities for Europe campaign to put universities at the centre of the European Union referendum debate. As part of this campaign university leaders committed to speaking out to highlight the value of European Union membership to universities and explain why this matters to British people, economy and society.

In a UK first, we've launched a new Research Technical Professional Career Pathway. Technical & research support staff are essential to UK research & innovation, and this scheme aims to improve the career pathways of colleagues in these roles.
A new digital tool will use climate data to help better predict and prepare for infectious disease outbreaks in the Horn of Africa.
Funded by @wellcometrust, the project is led by @LivUni_IVES with partners from Italy, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda & Somalia.
