The UK Treasury has today announced that it will fully fund EU projects even when these projects continue beyond the UK’s departure from the EU.
The UK is a major beneficiary of European Union research and innovation programmes. Under the previous funding programme for 2007-13, the UK received more than €7 billion (£5.9 billion). And the current programme, Horizon 2020, which runs from 2014 to 2020, offers more opportunities and has a higher budget than in the previous period.
Of course, the value of engaging in EU research programmes cannot be measured by the number of grants alone. The value lies in building networks – in exchanging information and experience. The Enterprise Europe Network provides free partnering and other support. It is present in over 60 countries, the EU and even more beyond including Bazil, China and New Zealand to mention but three so contact us to get free and impartial innovation support.
