Responding to the announcement today of the agreement of the Windsor Framework, UUK Chief Executive, Vivienne Stern MBE, said:
We are relieved to hear that the Windsor Framework has been agreed. The removal of this political roadblock must now lead to the rapid confirmation of UK association to Horizon Europe, Copernicus and Euratom, as set out in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
Full association with Horizon continues to be best outcome for both the UK, and for our research partners across Europe and beyond. We urge all sides to start the necessary talks now so that association can take effect as soon as the Framework is implemented.
Vivienne Stern MBE
Chief Executive of Universities UK
