UK researchers tell ministers to shoulder more for EU science

The UK should contribute to the European Commission’s Framework programmes at a level that exceeds the grant value that British researchers could receive, according to UK scientists.

The call was made in response to a paper published by the Department for Exiting the European Union on 6 September, in which ministers outlined their desire to continue collaborating with a number of EU research agencies including Horizon 2020 and its successors after Brexit.

Researchers in the UK welcomed the paper but raised concerns over the amount of funding that the UK may be willing to stump up for maintaining its links with EU science, suggesting that more should be provided to cover the costs of UK grant values and extras.
