The UK and the EU have agreed on a flexible extension of the Article 50 period to 31 January 2020. During this period, the UK will remain a member of the EU with all the relevant rights and obligations. This means that UK organisations can continue to participate in Horizon 2020 as a Member State, and remain eligible to apply for Horizon 2020 funding. This includes requesting the relevant part of the project’s budget as an EU contribution. A ratified deal, based on the provisions set out in the Withdrawal Agreement, would ensure continued UK participation in Horizon 2020 until the end of the programme and for the lifetime of projects. If the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified by the UK Parliament before 31 January 2020, the extension would be terminated, and the UK would withdraw from the EU on the first day of the following month. The government’s no-deal guarantees remain in place to ensure continuity of funding in a no-deal scenario.
