Responding to the start of negotiations on the UK’s association to Horizon Europe, Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society, said, “The new start, at last, to hopefully final negotiations on the UK’s association to the EU’s research programmes, is good news for science and innovation and for the UK’s long-term prosperity and well-being. The Government has repeatedly said that association is the preferred outcome, and I am delighted that the Secretary of State in the newly created Department of Science, Innovation and Technology is so clearly committed to making it a reality. We wish her well and look forward to both sides working towards a deal as quickly as possible.”
