Underwriting of post-Brexit H2020 projects confirmed

Date: 01/08/2017

Jo Johnson, the British Minister for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation confirmed on 18th July 2017 that the British Government will underwrite all Horizon 2020 projects which are running after March 2019, which is the set date for Brexit.

Thus, all proposals submitted before the UK leaves the EU are automatically financed. Two-stage calls are guaranteed to be funded as long as the first-stage proposal is formally submitted before the UK exits the EU. It will also apply to Joint Technology Initatives (JTIs), Joint Programming Initatives (JPIs) and ERANET.
