and Mark Walport chief executive designate of United Kingdom research and innovation (UKRI) the new organization of research funding councils that will launch next April spoke with ScienceInsider about the difficulties in being concrete about post-Brexit science relations with Europe Johnson promised "more detail shortly" But for US researchers Brexit could offer some new opportunities In addition to contributions by UK researchers to DUNE the UK government in July announced a 100 million pot called the Rutherford Fund to attract researchers In addition Walport addressed the future of the international ITER fusion reactor project The transcript has been edited for brevity and clarity Q: What’s the exact nature of the future scientific relationship the United Kingfom wants with the European Union JJ: I would point you to the position paper which describes in some detail the value we see in European collaboration and our desire to forge a deep and special new relationship with the European Union We haven’t been specific about the exact mechanisms and modalities that would make that kind of relationship possible because as you understand it’s all still subject to the discussions that are ongoing in Brussels But we do see huge value from programs such as [the EU research funding program] Horizon 2020 the space programs that the EU runs and also from the nuclear research programs We would want those sorts of collaborations to continue one way or another subject to the discussions that are underway in Brussels Q: So you’re saying that the criticisms about lack of implementation details in the position paper is just the nature of the beast right now JJ: It’s a function of the fact that we’re still discussing these matters and will have more detail shortly Q: Are you talking directly to the officials responsible for the Brexit negotiations JJ: We have a nonstop dialogue with colleagues across government We also have mechanisms to ensure that the sector—the university sector and the science community—is feeding in both directly to me but also simultaneously to my ministerial colleagues in the Department for Exiting the European Union We have a high-level working group on which the relevant representative bodies are all present Q: How much if any of the 100 million Rutherford Fund announced in July to attract researchers to the United Kingdom is earmarked for the United States JJ: We’re not earmarking it for specific countries at this point We want to use it to attract the best and brightest from around the world to the UK But we do hope that early career researchers in the US will look at it with interest Q: Much about the attraction of the United Kingdom as a destination hinges on the eventual immigration plan that the United Kingdom settles on Do you expect it to be harder for US scientists to immigrate to the United Kingdom than it currently is JJ: No no I wouldn’t think so at all I would point you to the prime minister’s Lancaster House speech in January where she made very clear that she wants the UK—we want the UK—to remain a go-to place for scientists researchers and tech investors from all around the world We want to remain open to bright and brilliant people Q: If the United Kingdom loses scientific talent before and after Brexit because of the departure of top scientists who are EU citizens won’t that make it less attractive as a collaborative partner What will UKRI be able to do to make up for that JJ: I don’t think we are going to lose talent We’re providing extra resource to our research and development efforts As I said the government’s committing an additional 2 billion to our science and we have been absolutely clear that we see our future as an economy as being one that’s at the cutting edge of science and innovation UKRI has a huge part to play in delivering on that vision But I’m confident we’ll succeed Q: Prime Minister Theresa May pledged that applied research will get an extra 47 billion over the next 4 years as part of the new industrial strategy But how much of this will be available for basic research JJ: The 47 billion is not just for applied research it’s for the totality of our research and development activities So it will encompass a very significant amount of extra money for basic research Q: Brexit will cut the United Kingdom out of the EU-funded programs of the European Space Agency such as Copernicus (Earth observation) and Galileo (satellite navigation) . JJ: To be discussed Q: Will the United Kingdom subscribe individually to remain part of these programs JJ: You see we are sort of leaping several stages ahead of where we are in the discussions and I don’t think we have reached any of the kind of conclusions that your question assumes Q: The United Kingdom is a world leader in fusion energy research But leaving the Euratom treaty will cut UK researchers off from the international ITER fusion reactor project Will you be seeking to remain part of ITER JJ: I think there’s a misconception in the question MW: ITER is a global project So China participates US participates Russia participates And so the UK can find mechanisms to take part in it ITER is a global collaboration with partners from many countries around the world And so obviously subject to negotiations in principle it would be possible for the UK to find a mechanism working partnership to carry on Q: ITER is hugely overbudget And the European Union was formally one of the seven partners There has been an enormous amount of handwringing over this One could imagine that the United Kingdom uses this as an opportunity to simply leave ITER and do something else Has that been considered MW: There are no plans to do that And you know we are a very active participant through JET [the Joint European Torus] and the R&D that is necessary for the ITER project to happen Q: Most researchers opposed Brexit Many bodies have argued the United Kingdom will be demonstrably worse off in terms of research after March 2019 with less funding fewer opportunities for collaboration and restricted mobility To what extent are you arguing within government that science needs to be treated as a special case to protect it from the worst effects of Brexit JJ: Everyone is aware of the benefits that we have from EU nationals working in our institutions They make a huge contribution And that’s widely appreciated across government We want those sorts of contributions to continue And I just refer you again to the various papers that we’ve been putting out over the summer that will make all of this possible in the future We want our research base to continue to attract brilliant people from around the world from the EU and beyond so that we remain a go-to place for science and tech investment in years to come Q: So no special case for protecting science as opposed to other sectors of the economy JJ: Well if you look at the paper that we put out [on 6 September] that makes it very clear that we see enormous value from European collaboration And that we will be keen to put in place a new and special relationship with the EU that will make that possible and something that we can even build on and develop in years to come Q: Regarding DUNE is this the science version of Global Britain JJ: This is an agreement that’s been underway in the pipeline for two and a half years so it’s not it’s not a sort of a knee-jerk reaction to Brexit if that’s if that’s what you mean This is a demonstration that Britain is an open outward-looking country that is keen to collaborate with the most brilliant scientists around the world wherever they are Written by Harsha Bhogle | Updated: November 10 2014 11:40 am Book cover: Playing it My Way Related News Playing It My Way Author: Sachin Tendulkar Publisher: Hachette India Pages: 486 Rs 899 It is almost impossible to be satiated by a book on Sachin Tendulkar The canvas is too vast the paints limited the expectations as high as from a Tendulkar innings I began searching for things I wanted to see a mistake every reviewer makes The prerogative of telling a story belongs to the author and no one else and so you cannot complain about what he doesn’t want to tell you And so I focussed on what was there I searched for the other Tendulkar; not the one exposed to difficult wickets and mean bowlers not the one measured in numbers and scorecards but the one who lived a fiercely guarded private life even as every move in the public eye was recorded I wanted to see as the movie publicists might say “The Making of Tendulkar” I thought I knew the story most of it at least I had seen a boy evolve into a man a batsman become a legend a shy man with fewer words than shots deliver an extraordinarily moving retirement speech I was delighted to see there was more as there always is with Tendulkar There is always in the evolution of great people a moment when they caught the right bus when someone held their hand when the tide turned their way It happened with Tendulkar at 11 when a doting brother pleaded with a coach to take another look at the young man holding onto him He had already been rejected been told to come back when a little older Ajit Tendulkar asked for one more opportunity and requested that the coach pretend to go away give the impression he wasn’t watching He knew that freed of the pressure of being watched Sachin would play the shots he could In time to come he would play his finest innings in public glare sometimes with a camera exclusively on him Ajit comes through as a powerful caring guardian angel one of many Tendulkar was privileged to have It is an amazing relationship Ajit in his own words was just a club cricketer who didn’t make it And yet as Sachin conquered one batting peak after another he kept turning to Ajit for advice The decision to cut out the cover drive in that amazing double century at Sydney in 2004 was as much Ajit’s as Sachin’s “He said I was allowing myself to get out to bowlers rather than making them have to take my wicket…I took up the challenge (from Ajit of remaining not out in both innings) and played what was in some ways my most difficult Test innings” I find it fascinating that a batsman able to play Dale Steyn at his most fiery Shane Warne at his most crafty bat through unbearable pain and occasionally with tissues stuffed into his trousers to guard against a bad stomach should turn to someone who had never faced a ball outside a maidan for advice In Indian cricket’s biggest blockbuster Ajit plays a pivotal role As does another who played but one first class match (State Bank of India vs Hyderabad) Once Ramakant Achrekar accepted Tendulkar he took over his cricketing life picking him out of colony games plonking him on his scooter and taking him to play cricket “Don’t waste your time playing inane games with these kids Cricket is waiting for you at the nets Practice hard and see what magic can transpire” The coach was relentless the pupil occasionally reluctant Achrekar took the option of being reluctant away When a young Tendulkar wanted to watch a higher age-group inter-school final he was ordered back “He said it wasn’t for me to come and watch other people play…if I practised hard enough people from across the world would come and watch me play” Both Ajit Tendulkar and Ramakant Achrekar are people of few words but it would be fascinating to know from them if it was merely affection altruism or a deep insight into potential greatness that caused them to mould this rich piece of clay I searched too for insights into the art of batsmanship and found them nuggets loitering in narratives Like this one “I’ve always believed that cricket is best played when your mind is at the opposite end and that problems occur when your mind is stuck at your own end” He explains it as he goes along but it is well worth reflecting on it without the option of the next paragraph He talks about practising batting with his eyes shut about suddenly altering his stance to play fast bowling He says much but you want more With Tendulkar you always do Much will be written about the Chappell phase the Dravid declaration the disappointment with his captaincy the many landmarks the winning of the World Cup (and the many attempts that went awry) the frustration of the 100th hundred and the decision to retire But that was the public Tendulkar The other Tendulkar is just as interesting Harsha
