Horizon 2020 Brexit update
Please note that the result of the UK referendum on EU membership and the invoking of Article 50 have no immediate effect on UK applications to Horizon 2020 (H2020) or on UK participation in current H2020 projects. Imperial academics should therefore continue to apply to all three pillars of H2020 as normal.
The UK Government has confirmed that it will underwrite for their full duration all H2020 projects that are on-going at the point of the UK’s exit from the EU and also all H2020 funding that is applied for before the UK’s exit and is subsequently successful. Please see http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/research-office/funder-information/european-commission/horizon-2020/ for full details. Please contact the Europe team if you have any queries about H2020 or if you are discouraged by European partners from leading or participating in H2020 consortia.
