Brexit calls for UK to benefit from scientific research projects in EU

Brexit calls for UK to benefit from scientific research projects in EU

The United Kingdom has launched a formal appeal against being excluded from scientific research projects in the EU, using a clause in the post-Brexit deal, the British government has confirmed.

This is the first challenge to the European Union federation after Brexit.

The British government said in a statement that it had activated “a mechanism provided for in the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) to resolve disputes between the UK and the EU”.

He said he took the move “in an effort to end the ongoing delays in the UK’s access to scientific research programs in the EU, including Horizon Europe”.

The UK indicated that it had negotiated access to the EU’s research and innovation programme, but the bloc “refuses to end UK access, causing significant damage to research and development in the UK and EU member states”.

“The EU continues to be in clear breach of our agreement and repeatedly seeks to politicize key scientific cooperation by denying access to these important programmes. We cannot allow this to continue,” Foreign Affairs Minister Liz Trace said in the statement.

The European Commission confirmed on Wednesday morning that it had received a letter from the British government regarding the matter.

“The Commission acknowledges receipt of the UK’s request for consultations and will respond in accordance with the applicable rules set out in the post-Brexit agreement,” European Commission spokesman Daniel Ferri said.

But earlier in the day, during a regular press conference, he insisted that the issue was experiencing “serious difficulties”, noting that the trade agreement does not oblige the EU to involve the UK in such plans.
