The European Commission's budget proposals for 2021-27

02 May 2018

Commenting on the European Commission’s budget proposals for 2021-2027 announced today, Russell Group Chief Executive, Dr Tim Bradshaw, said: 

“We welcome the European Commission’s ambitions to strengthen European science in the next research and innovation programme. It is even more important that the UK can be part of this programme so our universities can continue to collaborate closely with our partners across the continent. This will ensure we can enhance the social, economic, health and other benefits that research and innovation can deliver across the whole of Europe and more widely.

“Every year students and staff at Russell Group universities benefit from opportunities to study or work abroad and we welcome people from every EU country to our campuses. We hope our universities can continue to cooperate with European partners on education and training initiatives as part of the European Commission’s plans to enhance and expand the Erasmus programme.”
