Switzerland delegation report

From 19–21 February 2017, a delegation of three UK university Vice-Chancellors, representatives from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Universities UK and Universities UK International travelled to Bern and Zurich. The delegation’s objectives were to learn about Swiss stakeholders’ experience of having their status in Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+ downgraded in 2014, how they set up national replacement schemes and their approach to negotiating with the European Commission. It was also an opportunity to discuss ways in which the Swiss and the UK sectors could work together during the UK–EU exit negotiations.
