Brexit: the Erasmus and Horizon programmes
The EU Committee of British House of Lords published the report entitled „Brexit: the Erasmus and Horizon programmes“ highlighting the impact Brexit will have on UK participation in the EU’s international exchange and research and innovation programmes.
The Withdrawal Agreement would ensure that UK participation in Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020 until the end of 2020. Of particular concern to the UK's research community is the loss of access to major H2020 funding, including the European Research Council and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
The UK will seek to participate in the next phase of the Erasmus and Horizon programmes (in 2021 – 2027) as it is in the UK and the EU's mutual interest to preserve current close levels of cooperation on research and innovation and educational mobility.
