Answered on

23 October 2018

Two rounds of negotiations have taken place on Science and Innovation, the first on 22 May 2018 where we presented our slides on the 'Framework for the UK-EU Partnership on Science, Research and Innovation’. The second round was on 7 June 2018 where the Commission presented the programme regulations for Horizon Europe to the UK.

The White Paper set out that the UK is committed to establishing a far-reaching science and innovation accord with the EU as part of our future relationship. As part of this accord, the UK would like to explore association to EU research funding programmes, including Horizon Europe and the Euratom R&T Programme.
