The UK and Swiss association to Horizon Europe

Since its foundation, The Guild has been actively advocating for scientific collaboration across borders. It is imperative for the success of Horizon Europe, and for European science as a whole, that the UK and Switzerland can contribute fully to the programme. This would give Horizon Europe unprecedented scale and scientific quality, enabling Europe to tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges, and boost competitiveness and growth.

The Guild joins top researchers and the heads of higher education institutions across Europe in calling for an open and collaborative research and innovation landscape that is free from political barriers.

The signatories of the ‘Stick to Science’ campaign urge the European Council, Parliament, Commission, as well as European Union Member States, and the governments of the UK and Switzerland, to rapidly realise the UK’s and Switzerland’s association agreements to Horizon Europe.
