The EBSA Executive Committee deeply regrets the decision of the UK to leave the EU. The Executive Committee strongly considers this to be a step in the wrong direction, opposite to what European Biophysics specifically and science in general have achieved and strive for: to facilitate seamless communication, collaboration, and exchange between European countries, to the benefit of both science and society. The Executive Committee has grave concerns about the impending severe damage to European science that will be caused by this very unfortunate step.

Approved by the Executive Committee, Madrid, June 25th, 2016.
