Call for Case Studies

Are you involved in research, innovation or further/higher education?
Are/were you based in Scotland or do/did you plan to come to Scotland?
Have you /your work been affected by the Brexit vote?

If you answered yes to all three questions, then the Young Academy of Scotland and the Royal Society of Edinburgh would like to hear from you.

Our objective is to capture the impact, whether positive or negative, perceived or factual, of the Brexit vote on people involved in research, innovation or further/higher education.

We are keen to collect evidence in order to inform policy makers, as negotiations progress. We would also like to publicly report a number of case studies in order to raise awareness of such impact.  We intend to make the case studies we receive available on our website and potentially elsewhere; however, if you have stories you would like to share that contain sensitive information, please choose the ‘confidential’ option on the drop-down menu below and these will not be publicly shared.  Publicly available case studies will be anonymised.

While all the submitted evidence will be useful (even if strictly confidential, these may be used in compiling statistics), we cannot guarantee that your submission will be selected for publication.

If you have any questions about this, please contact

Please fill in the form below.

We thank you very much for your input.
