UK's Horizon 2020 Status
Following the aftermath of Brexit, UK researchers have been left vulnerable as their status in the H2020 program is now uncertain. Recent events have driven participants to avoid counterparts from the UK due to consortia's worries that the latter may become ineligible. To reduce this uncertainty, the British Treasury now guarantees British participants’ contributions in H2020 for projects during the remainder of the UK’s EU membership. Details such as the actual date of Brexit or if this refers to calls with deadlines before Brexit or to calls that opened before Brexit remain to be decided.
