The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said today that he wants the country to become a science superpower.
I want the UK to continue to be a global science superpower, and when we leave the EU we will support science and research and ensure that, far from losing out, the scientific community has a huge opportunity to develop and export our innovation around the world.
He said that this fast-track will help top scientists from science, engineering and technology to enter the country. They are also allowed to bring their families with.
Johnson also mentioned that they will expand the pool of UK research institutions and universities to able to endorse candidates and remove the need to hold an offer of employment before arriving.
