Royal Society position on Horizon Europe

11 October 2018

Read our 11 December 2019 explainer on why the UK must associate to Horizon Europe and our 3 March 2020 statement outlining five reasons for keeping UK science in European programmes.

The European Union is in the process of negotiating the ninth EU Framework Programme for research and innovation Horizon Europe.

The Royal Society believes it is in the UK’s best interests to seek full association to the programme after leaving the EU and has published a statement on the reciprocal value of UK-EU collaboration to research excellence, impact, public engagement, diversity and open science.

This position is set out more fully in the Society’s response to the Sir Adrian Smith review of future frameworks for international collaboration on research and innovation
