UK legal entities and Horizon 2020 following the UK Referendum

The European Commission has issued a statement on the eligibility of UK legal entities to participate in and receive funding from Horizon 2020.  This is on both the main H2020 website and the Participant Portal at the following links. It simply states that:

The Statement of 29 June of the Heads of State or Government of 27 Member States, as well as the Presidents of the European Council and the European Commission, confirms that until the UK leaves the EU, EU law continues to apply to and within the UK, both when it comes to rights and obligations. This includes the eligibility of UK legal entities to participate and receive funding in Horizon 2020 actions.

We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
