Concerningly Unpredictable

During a company wide communications session on 2019-20, the CEO was asked a question about the impact of Brexit on Research & Innovation policy and the access to R&I funding, which he graciously referred to me. Of course at this point in time, a mere 10 days to Brexit, I should have a clearly defined details on the UK’s position. But of course I’ve no new information and certainly no confident guess at what’s going to happen with regards to R&I funding, either in future collaborative projects or (worryingly) in current projects.

The best I could offer was to make it clear that our focus is centred on UK support, not the more ambitious strategic themes of Horizon 2020 or Horizon Europe.
