Brexit has been a source of concern for the research community. The EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement, which entered into force on 1 February 2020, outlines the future relationship between the UK and the EU. Other parties have provided analysis of what this means for future collaborative research and funding.
The SCCS partnership will continue to engage with European and other industry and research partners on future joint research bids. For more details, contact SCCS Project Manager, Dr Philippa Parmiter, or SCCS Business Development & Project Manager, Dr Romain Viguier.
The new research and innovation framework programme, Horizon Europe, will run from 2021 to 2027. The UK will formally associate with the programme, once the Horizon Europe Regulation has been ratified and the protocol agreed. This is expected to happen in time for first calls, with work programmes anticipated by April 2021. Work programmes for the European Research Council (ERC) and European Innovation Council (EIC) may be published earlier. A small number may not be open to non-member states.
