Australian official claims EU put limits on Horizon access


Spokesperson joins New Zealand counterpart in saying bloc restricted association talks to just Pillar II

An official from a second country has said it was the EU that limited the scope of talks on association to the bloc’s research and innovation programme, casting further doubt on a previous EU claim that applicants had only sought restricted access.
