Sweden establishes an international science office in the United Kingdom as a result of Britain’s Brexit victory.

BREXIT Britain is on the verge of a major victory, with Sweden establishing its international Office of Science and Innovation in the United Kingdom.

Sweden, which is a member of the European Union, opened its seventh international Office of Science and Innovation last weekend at its embassy in London.

The Swedish Science Office will “develop and strengthen collaboration between the UK and Sweden on issues related to the Government’s life sciences strategy, export and investment strategy, the Research and Innovation Bill, and the Government’s strategic partnership programmes,” according to a press release.

“The London Office is an important and strategic initiative for a country like Sweden where export and innovation issues are of vital importance,” said Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson, Minister for Business, Industry and Innovation.

“Establishment of the Office is an effective way to meet the goals of Sweden’s life sciences strategy, and it is completely in line with efforts to help the government’s partnership programs have a global impact.”

Sweden has established Science and Innovation Offices in its embassies in Brazil, New Delhi, Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, and Washington, DC.

“The new Office of Science and Innovation in the United Kingdom will help increase the international visibility of Swedish higher education institutions,” Anna Ekström, Minister of Education, said.

“This is critical in order to maintain high research quality and strengthen Sweden’s position as a research nation.”

“The UK is a priority country for Sweden and an important partner in areas like innovation and research, as well as a close ally on many trade policy issues,” the statement said.

“We are in the midst of a climate-driven green industrial transition, and the United Kingdom is a strategically important partner in these efforts,” Annika Strandhäll, Minister for Climate and the Environment, said.

“By establishing the London Office, we will be able to strengthen our ties and pursue more ambitious climate initiatives.”

Since Brexit, the United Kingdom has attracted more investment in science and technology from all over the world, including from European Union countries.

The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) will move its headquarters to the University of Reading’s Whiteknights campus, which was announced earlier this month.

The largest cluster of weather and climate scientists in the world will be housed at the British university.

On the, the ECMWF will construct a new, cutting-edge headquarters.
