Research and education experts questioned on future UK-EU relationship
The EU Services Sub-Committee hears evidence from research and higher education experts on the future UK-EU relationship after Brexit.
1. How important is the research and education sector to the UK economy? How significant is EU funding for the UK’s research and education sector?
2. In your view, should the UK seek third country affiliation with the EU’s Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ programmes at the end of the transition period? What costs could such affiliation have for the UK? Is affiliation worthwhile given these costs?
3. What should the priorities be for future domestic research funding if the UK does not affiliate with Horizon Europe? Has the Government consulted with your organisations on the options for an alternative, domestic research funding scheme?
