The UK Government has confirmed that it will seek to participate in EURATOM research and development programmes as an associate country following Brexit. Such programmes include Horizon 2020, the largest ever EU Research and Innovation initiative. The UK would make financial contributions to such research programmes, and would expect to receive influence in the direction of the related research efforts as a result. Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the UK Nuclear Industry Association, welcomed the news, but said that many other topics covered by the EURATOM framework still need to be addressed.
