Government position on UK Participation in Horizon 2020

Date: 06/03/2018

 European Commission

The UK government has (March 5 2018) issued a document to clarify the UK’s eligibility to participate in Horizon 2020, the EU's flagship programme for science, research and innovation.

Confirmation of the position supports the message in Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech on Friday that: "the UK is committed to establishing a far-reaching science and innovation pact with the EU, facilitating the exchange of ideas and researchers”.

The Q and A provides an overview of the position for UK applicants following the December 2017 joint report. It also offers assurances about the UK government’s commitment to underwrite funding, and answers questions regarding participation.

The full document can be found here on the UK Research Council Office (UKRO) website.  UKRO is the European Office of the UK Research Councils:  https://www.ukro.ac.uk/Pages/UKRO-Announcements-Page.aspx?ListID={782f4f00-0bfa-49e9-9317-ef927fb1d90b}&ItemID=75
