Current and Continuing Involvement in Horizon 2020

As some of you may be concerned about how the referendum last week might affect Horizon 2020 funding, I would like to provide the following reassurances:

  • For all our current EU grant holders, we expect that your projects will continue to run as normal, and proposals that are in the process of finalising the grant agreement are also unaffected.
  • Those of you who are preparing a Horizon 2020 proposal for submission, and/or are considering applying to Horizon 2020, you can and should continue with your proposals, as the UK is still an EU member for at least the next two years.
  • My colleagues and I in RIS are committed to supporting your collaborations with researchers in the EU and internationally.

As some of your EU partners may also have uncertainties about the status of the collaboration and the funding, I strongly encourage you to communicate this message to them at a suitable opportunity.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
