Parliamentary Links Day is an annual event organised in Parliament by the Royal Society of Biology on behalf of the science community, which aims to strengthen dialogue between scientists and politicians. This year it took place on 28th June, just days after the UK voted to leave the EU, and thus explored: Science after the referendum: What next?
