Response to Education and Skills Committee’s inquiry on Horizon 2020

Universities Scotland has submitted a briefing on the funding of Horizon 2020 to the Scottish Parliament’s Education and Skills Committee. The Committee, chaired by James Dornan MSP, asked for input on the future of the programme, which funds research and innovation projects across Europe. Up until September 2017, Scotland gained some €438 million in funding from the programme.

The recent report of Brexit negotiations published on 8 December, that went forward to the European Council summit (14-15 December), confirmed that the UK will continue to participate in the programme until its closure in 2020.
