Horizon Europe: Finance

Question for Department for Science, Innovation and Technology

To ask the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology, what her negotiating position is on the level of contribution that the UK would be willing to make to Horizon Europe.

24 April 2023

The Government are discussing association to Horizon Europe with the EU and hope our negotiations will be successful. That is our preference. We will not be providing a running commentary on these discussions.

Association would need to be on the basis of a good deal for the UK’s researchers, businesses and taxpayers. If we are not able to secure association on fair and appropriate terms, we will implement Pioneer – our bold, ambitious alternative.
