Briefing note on continued higher education and research collaboration through European Union programmes

Briefing
24 January 2018

​Despite the uncertainty created by the UK’s decision to leave the EU, it is vital to note that at present there is no change to UK’s status in Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020. We would like to encourage European universities to continue to pursue collaborative research and student exchange opportunities with UK counterparts. 

UK universities remain strongly committed to strengthening their valuable links with European institutions and researchers. We urge European universities and researchers to continue to work with and collaborate with UK partners to ensure that these strong foundations are preserved. This briefing note provides some information on the phase one agreement and how this impacts the UK's involvement in programmes like Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020. It also looks at citizen rights and financial guarantees.
