OVERVIEW View Conference Agenda
This conference, run in association with the Fraser of Allander Institute, Strathclyde Business School, University of Strathclyde and supported by Morton Fraser, maps out the implications for Scottish businesses and public services of the UK leaving the EU.
It discusses how lawmaking and regulation will be affected, the implications for the strategic planning and delivery of trade and commerce, the impact on the delivery and procurement of public services and the likely consequences for public finances and the economy.
How long will it take to negotiate Brexit? Is it a commercial threat or opportunity? Does it have negative or positive implications for our public services? What will its legal implications mean for UK and Scottish collaboration with the EU and the rest of the world in areas such as business, justice, research and higher education, transport and our core export sectors?
This conference will examine what you need to know now in order to start to plan ahead for the consequences of the Brexit negotiations, whether you are involved in delivering public services or running a business.
Whatever happens with Brexit, public services will still have to be delivered in Scotland and business will still need to trade inside and outside the EU. Now is the time to think about which questions are the right ones to ask to minimise risk and uncertainty and plan for a successful future.
Some of the core areas to be discussed include:
- What happens once UK and Scottish lawmaking is disconnected from the EU?
- What does Brexit mean for the delivery of public services?
- How will Brexit affect public finances?
- The economic implications of Brexit for jobs, investment and growth
- What are the implications of leaving the EU for collaboration on research, development, science, and higher education?
- Considerations for business, trade and commerce: Access to the EU and to other markets
- Out of the EU but where and how may compliance still be required?
- Learning from Norway?

I had attended the previous seminar which was why I attended this one too. The seminar was a reminder or refresher of what I already know. However I will take away some good points from today. It was good to learn more about the balance of views and rights and it was very interesting to get an insight into Tam's (Baillie) experiences as Children's Commissioner.
