Working Towards a Strategy for Life Sciences

Immediately following the referendum result, the UK EU Steering Group was convened to help bring forward an industry view on the key issues for life sciences as we leave the EU, and to enable dialogue with government, including the Department for Exiting the European Union, HM Treasury, the Department for International Trade, the Department of Health, the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, and No10.

At the first steering group on 6th September, industry presented a summary of the key issues including regulation, trade and tariffs, skills and access to funding for research and growth. Since then, subgroups have worked on detailed options for regulation (including MHRA and DExEU); access to finance (led by the BIA); and trade and tariffs (led by DIT LSO) and these were presented back at the second meeting on 23 September. A further meeting is expected before Article 50 is triggered with work continuing on some critical day one issues.
