European funding

Even in the face of Brexit, applications for EU funding are still encouraged.

Despite the Brexit vote last year, and the triggering of Article 50 in Spring 2017, the EU H2020 programme is still a valuable source of funding. After some initial nervousness there is no evidence that applications involving UK partners are being disadvantaged. Indeed the University has increased its success rate in H2020 applications since the Brexit vote.

It is not yet clear whether UK researchers will be able to continue accessing EU research funding after the completion of Brexit but this uncertainty should not deter anyone from applying. The UK government has recently reiterated their commitment to underwrite all EU funding achieved for applications submitted before the formal completion of Brexit.
