UK researchers are able to continue to make applications to Horizon 2020 until any withdrawal from the EU is complete.The extent of UK participation in future EU research programmes will depend on domestic decisions by the UK government, and negotiations with the EU.
The government has stated that it is “determined to ensure that the UK continues to play a leading role in European and international research.”
Colleagues in the Research Division will be in contact with officials in Brussels to seek clarifications wherever that is possible. The School will also work with our partners in the Russell Group to push the UK government to clarify the position of the UK science community with respect to the EU research programmes.
If your research funding or EU collaborations have been affected by the vote to leave the EU, please send details of your experiences to Jon Deer – J.Deer@lse.ac.uk – in the Research Division.
