First of all apologies for the poor sound quality on some parts of this recording!
As the UK announced its national researcher mobility scheme named after after the famous Enigma mathematician Alan Turing to be launched as the new EU mobility programme Erasmus was being launched we decided it was time for a chat about the two schemes and what it would do to researcher mobility and collaboration both within Europe and globally.
For that we talked to Nabil Ali. Nabil has worked as an advisor for Universities UK for a number of years and was part of their Brexit team and today is situated in Brussels working with research and higher education.
As this marks the launch of the two programmes the talk was speculative in nature, but touches on how essential international collaboration is to research and how difficult this is becoming to navigate for researchers and universities.
We were very fortunate that Nabil said yes to this, and we feel certain that researchers and research managers alike will enjoy this conversation as much as us.
