There are wide-ranging implications for physics following the outcome of the EU referendum and there are particular complications for Northern Ireland. The IOP will be working hard in the coming months to continue to showcase the evidence and provide expert advice to the government on the importance of science in society, as a driver for innovation, and for the future prosperity of Northern Ireland. As valuable members of our community, we would like to invite you to a town hall meeting on Brexit and to contribute to the debate on what should happen next. We hope you can join us.
