Recent political changes in Europe and the USA such as Brexit and the US withdrawal from the Paris Accord will profoundly affect science and scientists on both sides of the Atlantic. Can these changes create new opportunities for collaboration? What new challenges will scientists have to navigate? Recently, President Macron invited US climate scientists and entrepreneurs to move to France, setting up a website where they can register and learn how to pursue opportunities and funding. Is Ireland, uniquely positioned between the USA and Brexit better placed to drive scientific collaborations, studies and advances? Can the Irish diaspora of scientists foster a new kind of transatlantic leadership?
