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.
