Please with colleagues interested in EU Funding. Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.
The result of the UK referendum in June 2016 has long term implications for EU funding programmes. However, until the UK has formally left the EU and it continues to pay into the EU budget, access to these programmes will continue.
Assurances set out by the Treasury include:
- all structural and investment fund (ESIF) projects signed before the Autumn Statement will be fully funded, even when these projects continue beyond the UKs departure from the EU.
- the Treasury will also put in place arrangements for assessing whether to guarantee funding for specific ESIF projects that might be signed after the Autumn Statement, but while we remain a member of the EU. Further details will be provided ahead of the Autumn Statement (due on 23rd November).
- where UK organisations bid directly to the European Commission on a competitive basis for EU funding projects while we are still a member of the EU, for example universities participating in Horizon 2020, the Treasury will underwrite the payments of such awards, even when specific projects continue beyond the UKs departure from the EU.
As a result, British businesses and universities will have certainty over future funding and should continue to bid for competitive EU funds while the UK remains a member of the EU.
There are no ESIF calls currently open in D2N2.
All existing contracted projects will run as agreed and any future calls will bepublicised here.
