To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, pursuant to the Answer of 27 September 2018 to Question 171405, in which negotiation rounds science and innovation has been discussed since March 2018; and in which forthcoming rounds science and innovation will be discussed.
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.
