The EU Referendum: What does it mean for Sheffield?

The Crick Centre is hosting a discussion on what the upcoming EU referendum means for Sheffield.

The United Kingdom faces a momentous decision, whether to leave or to remain in the European Union. As voters will soon be asked to settle the issue in a referendum, there is a need for more information and impartial analysis. At this event we will debate the main questions with the help of academic specialists, representatives from the voluntary and business sectors. Members of the audience will be given the chance to pose questions to the panel and discuss the effects for Sheffield and the region.
