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 its intention to negotiate associated status with the new Horizon Europe programme, and is expected to pursue this goal going forward.
The School continues to 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. You can find out more on the Russell Group website.
If your research funding or EU collaborations have been affected by the vote to leave the EU, please send details of your experience to Jon Deer – J.Deer@lse.ac.uk – in the Research and Innovation Division.
