In 2016 it was recognised that cooperation in science would be an important element of the developing relationship between Argentina and the UK. This was possible because of strong historic UK‐Argentina science ties. Also, both countries recognised it was crucial to strive for excellence in science and that international collaboration led to better science outcomes, especially for their respective economies and development. In November 2016 the two science Ministers signed a ‘Statement of Intent’, which identified science focus collaboration areas. These have progressed with the support of industry and Academies, national laboratories and Universities. An important factor in the sustainability of science links is to offer sufficient opportunities for the exchange of people.
