Thank you for your support – UK-EU deal agreed, including Horizon Europe

at 15 Jan 2021 16:01

Dear petition supporters,

On 24 December, the EU and UK secured a trade deal. It was heartening news that the deal includes UK participation in Horizon Europe – this is crucial for the health, wealth and wellbeing of everyone in Europe, the UK and beyond. This means that UK researchers will be able to apply for EU grants and can continue to be collaborative partners for EU researchers. Please share this news with your networks.

The negotiators continued efforts in prioritising talks last year reflects the importance of research to people everywhere – now, more than ever. Thank you from all of us at Wellcome, EuroScience and EU-LIFE for your support for a #dealforscience. It has been important to demonstrate support from all Member States and the UK to make the case for continued EU-UK research collaboration.

Dear Petition Supporter,

Thank you for your support for EU-UK science collaboration.

International collaboration makes science stronger and we should not let Brexit disrupt this. Ensuring that the UK can join the Horizon Europe programme will ensure researchers can continue to tackle shared challenges, such as cancer and climate change.

Now is our last chance to stand up for science. The Brexit negotiations are in their final stages – the last scheduled round finishes at the very start of October. Both sides agree with the principle on ongoing collaboration and participation in Horizon Europe has been discussed frequently. However, there has been too little progress towards an agreement.

Ahead of the last negotiating round, we published a statement urging both sides to approach talks with a spirit of compromise.

We are asking you to share the joint statement, signed by over 100 researchers and organisations to show your continued support for UK and EU science collaboration. The statement offers a set of solutions to known sticking points in the discussions: wellcome.ac.uk/sites/default/files/reaching-agreement-uk-participation-horizon-europe.pdf

Please see attached for a social media pack to help you share the statement if you would like to (this is also published on the petition website).

Thank you again for your support.
