UK's departure from the EU: Q&A

The UK formally left the European Union at the end of January 2020 with a deal. In practice this means that UK partners and Lead Partners will continue to deliver their projects in the 2014-2020 Programme period as planned. There will be no changes for UK partners or Lead Partners of North Sea Region projects for the remaining part of this programming period.

A letter from the Ministry of Housing Communities & Local Government has been sent all UK project partners confirming this and explaining that projects will go on as originally anticipated. You can read the letter here

The list of questions and answers which was previously posted here for our project community in relation to the Brexit process has been annexed but can still be viewed here for information purposes.
