European research funding updates

In August 2016, the Treasury confirmed in a statement that if UK universities bid directly on a competitive basis for Horizon 2020 funding while we are still a member of the EU, it will underwrite the payment of Horizon 2020 awards when projects continue beyond the UK’s departure from the EU.

As such, our College encourages those who are planning to apply for European funding to continue with their plans.

Professor Paul Hogg, Vice-Principal for Research and Enterprise, said on 24 June 2016, that it is “important that we continue to develop bids for European funding in the hope of positive outcomes in the weeks and months of discussion to come.”
