    The UK is one of the largest recipients of research funding in the EU, having received €8.8 billion between 2007 and 2013 for research, development and innovation among other EU member states. I don't know whether we are, as a nation, prepared for the consequences of a sudden loss of funding for scientific research and development if we leave the EU. Is anyone else concerned about this? (I may be moreso since my future career path involves research in physics and engineering). What are your thoughts?

    Ask Switzerland how they are funding their projects. They managed more than most EU countries single handedly. Even the Hadron Collider was about 4.6 billion Euros alone.
