Following the results of the UK Referendum on membership of the EU, the Council for the Mathematical Sciences (CMS) takes the following view:
· The focus will remain on collaboration in the mathematical sciences as currently exists.
· All academic/research/professional mathematical societies will continue to work with their counterparts in other countries as closely and respectfully as possible, regardless of the political arrangements in place.
· Currently all EU arrangements remain in force as the UK has not yet left the EU and current arrangements are being kept in place during any transition phase eg. access to student loans for EU students will continue for those in receipt of such loans and for those currently applying for a loan.
· Whatever the final arrangements, the aim will be to sustain collaboration in the mathematical sciences with EU and international partners on an equally open and reciprocal basis.
