  • Andre Geim

Press/Media: Expert comment


Sir Andre Geim, who won a Nobel prize in 2010 for his work on graphene and is based at Manchester University, is equally damning: “In science, a no-deal Brexit would be like a severe drought for an orchard. You can’t expect to have a harvest after watering it again next year. All the trees are already dead.”
