Answered on

7 March 2019

My officials have met with the European University Institute (EUI) and we have agreed to work together on the future relationship between the UK and the EUI, including options for future participation in EUI activities. UK universities will be able to continue to collaborate with the EUI in research projects even if the UK is no longer a member of the EUI Convention.
