The new deal has been struck with Australia, Japan and the US to develop the “tech of tomorrow”. The UK is expected to pump £17 million into the new deal between the countries. This will allow the UK to work with institutions such as NASA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US to Australia’s University of Sydney, Japan’s Riken and the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Germany

The investment for these 12 projects will come from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

“Isn’t it better to collaborate with everyone around the world rather than keeping scientific exploration and R&D as an exclusive closed EU shop?”

This comment comes after the EU blocked the UK from participating in Horizon Europe – their £80billion key research and innovation project.

Citizen Smithie wrote: “This all a bit too advanced for the EU.

“Nothing innovative comes out of the bloc.

“Good move by Britain.”
