Horizon 2020, as the name suggests, will come to an end in 2020. Nevertheless, the European Commission is working on the new Framework Programme, Horizon Europe. Even if there is no revolution, but an evolution, some novelties will be introduced in the structure and in the implementation. This document summarises the main features of Horizon Europe publicly available so far.
The UK and the EU have agreed 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.
