MEET, MATCH AND COLLABORATE Cardiff, 7th November 2017
Find trusted partners in Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing at the H2020 Information Day
Did you know...? Although Brexit negotiations have begun, EU funding for innovation in the UK remains available at local, national and EU levels for the foreseeable future. The UK government has committed to underwrite all approved UK Horizon 2020 applications submitted before the date of the UKâ€™s actual departure from the European Union, including for projects continuing beyond that date. All non-UK Horizon 2020 consortium partners can therefore engage confidently with potential UK partners, safe in the knowledge that the latter will be funded to contribute fully to the conclusion of the projects in which they participate.
