After the Brexit Referendum: Possible outcomes for Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+

On 23 June 2016, 51.9% of the British electorate voting in the referendum chose to leave the European Union (EU) after the United Kingdom (UK) had joined in 1973. EUA shares the disappointment over the result with its member Universities UK (UUK) and the British university community. EUA is very concerned about the insecurity this causes, notably with regard to the participation of British universities in the EU funding programmes as well as the long-term consequences for European cooperation in research and education. In order to help clarify the situation and shed some light on the current state of play, EUA has compiled the most up-to-date information which is relevant for universities.
