A 'Deal' is agreed between the EU and the UK

  • What is the transition period and what does this mean?

A 'Deal' is not agreed.

  • Will this affect current projects?
  • How will this affect participation in the next two years (What will still available as a Non-Member State).
  • What we need to do next?

The HM Treasury Guarantee

  • What is the Treasury Guarantee and how does it support existing and future projects?
  • How the Guarantee is being implemented and what we need to do.

Looking ahead

  • What the upcoming opportunities will be.
  • How other programmes will be affected by Brexit.

The message from the researchers in other Member States is clear. They want to continue working with their partners in Scotland and build on the relationships that have been developed over the last 40 years, maintaining the obvious win-win relationship that we currently have
