UK Participation in Horizon 2020 Documents available to read: http://www.rktomdx.co.uk/uk-participation-in-horizon-2020/

The European Council formally agreed on 15 December that sufficient progress had been made to move on to the second stage of the negotiations, and adopted guidelines for that second phase. This followed the publication of a Joint Report on progress during the first phase by the Government and the European Commission on 8 December, which outlines the agreement in principle made between the EU and the UK. The UK and EU have committed to translating the Joint Report into a legally-binding Withdrawal Agreement as soon as possible, subject to outstanding issues to be agreed as part of phase two of the negotiations. The European Commission published their version of draft legal text on 28 February. The UK continues to stand behind the commitments made in December and will work with the Commission to agree how they should be translated into legal form in the Withdrawal Agreement. The Joint Report states: “following withdrawal from the Union the UK will continue to participate in the Union programmes financed by the MFF 2014-2020 until their closure (excluding participation in financial operations which give rise to a contingent liability for which the UK is not liable as from the date of withdrawal). Entities


located in the UK will be entitled to participate in such programmes. Participation in Union programmes will require the UK and UK beneficiaries to respect all relevant Union legal provisions including co-financing. Accordingly, the eligibility to apply to participate in Union programmes and Union funding for UK participants and projects will be unaffected by the UK’s withdrawal from the Union for the entire lifetime of such projects.” Horizon 2020 is one of the Union programmes covered by this text. The UK Government encourages the UK research and innovation (R&I) community to continue applying for Horizon 2020 funding and participating in Horizon 2020 projects because: ● Until our departure from the EU, we remain a Member State, with all the rights and obligations that entails. This means that UK entities are eligible to participate in all aspects of the Horizon 2020 programme while we remain a member of the EU. ● The UK and the EU fully intend UK entities’ eligibility in Horizon 2020 to remain unchanged for the duration of the programme, as set out in the Joint Report. This includes eligibility to participate in all Horizon 2020 projects and to receive Horizon 2020 funding for the lifetime of projects. ● The Government’s underwrite guarantee remains in place in the event that commitments made in the Joint Report are not met. The UK Government’s commitment to underwrite Horizon 2020 funding provides further reassurance to UK businesses and universities. Through this guarantee, any successful bid submitted before the UK leaves the EU will be funded for the lifetime of the project. This ensures businesses and universities can feel confident bidding for Horizon 2020 funds while the UK remains a member of the EU.

DETAILS: CONTACT RKTO DEADLINE: 13/04/2018 CONSULTANT RESEARCHER (ARABIC SPEAKER) We are looking for an experienced and skilled researcher with a solid understanding of procurement processes in Tunisia, who can conduct Transparency International’s research into areas of corruption risk in defence procurement in Tunisia and perform an assessment of the availability of information and corruption risks in Tunisia’s military acquisition process. The researcher will need to use their understanding of the Tunisian context to build on Transparency International’s typology of defence procurement corruption risk and make it relevant to the Tunisian context. They will identify data sources and assist in compiling policy recommendations relevant to Tunisia’s defence sector. The aim of this research is understanding these corruption risk patterns, which in turn can lead to better detection of corruption. Civil society can play an important role as an independent monitor exposing abuse in even the most well developed procurement systems. Governments can also benefit from understanding the patterns of corruption risk in order to develop mechanisms to address them and to fill in gaps in process and oversight that allow such risks to develop. Transparency International is working on research across a number of countries to understand where these corruption risks lie within the defence procurement cycle. The insights and lessons from this research will guide our future training materials for officials, oversight agencies, journalists and NGOs on how defence procurement corruption is most likely to occur and how to monitor for red flags. The data collected in this research will be used to substantiate the first report in TI DS’ series of ‘How to Reform Defence Procurement’ guides. This is an excellent opportunity for a skilled senior researcher to contribute to meaningful reform being sought by Transparency International in the anti-corruption field and the defence sector.
