The campaign brings together the voices of researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators across the continent, underlining the importance of collaboration at international level, without political barriers. It is spear-headed by the President and Boards of ETH Zurich and EPFL alongside Universities UK, the Wellcome Trust and the Royal Society.

The initiative emerged from a high-level roundtable on UK-Swiss-EU research relations convened by UCL European Institute on 26 November 2021. UCL President & Provost Dr Mike Spence is one of a range of high-level signatories, alongside Professor Mariana Mazzucato, Director of the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose at UCL.
