The EU Council has approved the agreement for the UK's exit from the EU and is now awaiting a decision by the UK Parliament and the European Parliament.

Meanwhile, the UK has continued to be an EU member, with the same rights and obligations as other members. The rules and frameworks for British participation in Horizon 2020 are unchanged during the extension.

If a Brexit agreement was approved in each parliament before 31 January next year, the agreement to postpone Brexit expires, and the country leaves the EU from the first day of the following month.

UKRO, the British Research Office in Brussels, continuously updates information on Brexit and the conditions for British participation in Horizon 2020. In their latest factsheet, they write, among other things, that the guarantee that the UK Government has undertaken to continue to fund UK participation in the Horizon 2020 programme in event of a severe Brexit still applies.

In the factsheet you will also find links to more information about UK participation in EU programme. You will also find links to where researchers and organizations outside the EU can turn to if they have questions about including a UK player in Horizon 2020.
