European Commission Confirms UK Participation Status

The European Commission continues to update the Funding & Tenders Portal to reflect the Withdrawal Agreement.

A new notice has been added to confirm that the UK continues to be eligible to receive funding from EU programmes under the long-term EU budget for 2014-2020.

“General notice for UK applicants: In conformity with the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement*, the UK and persons or entities established in the UK continue to be eligible to receive Union funds under actions carried out in direct, indirect or shared management, which implement Union programmes and activities committed under the MFF 2014-2020 until the closure of those Union programmes and activities. Restrictions may, however, apply for security-related reasons or concerning financial instruments. When such restrictions apply, these will be clearly specified in the call for proposals.

* Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community”

The statement is mirrored in UK Government and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) notices published earlier this month.

The UKRO factsheet is also publically available.
