The Foreign Secretary launched the Balance of Competences Review in Parliament on 12 July 2012. This follows the Coalition’s commitment to examine the balance of competences between the UK and the European Union. The review will provide an analysis of what the UK’s membership of the EU means for the UK national interest.

See the Review of the balance of competences for full details of the review programme.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is leading the review of competence in the area of ‘research and development’ which also covers aspects of space and innovation. Responses to this call for evidence, along with other sources of evidence, will be used to inform the report.

This call for evidence ran from May 2013 to August 2013.
