The EU and Research: Our Pledge

The University of Nottingham is responding to the UK's decision to leave the European Union (EU) by strengthening our commitments as a global institution.

We are unwavering in our dedication to world-class research with international partners and we will continue to retain, develop and attract the best and brightest researchers from across Europe and the world.

Central to this vision is our determination to build successful relationships with the University's current and future EU and international researchers.

We pledge to:

  • seek new, long-lasting relationships with institutions and commercial research partners across Europe and beyond
  • secure new investments in European partnerships, including funds for PhD students, and compete for international funding from all sources including Horizon 2020 ERC, Marie Sklodowska-Curie programmes and Erasmus
  • join the UK research community in lobbying for a continuing leading role in EU research projects

Professor Dame Jessica Corner recently sent out a statement to staff on the Government’s commitment to underwrite Horizon 2020 funding.

The diversity of our research activities grew out of a commitment to work with the brightest minds and the best organisations wherever they are in the world. This commitment has not changed: we collaborate with partners worldwide and will continue to do so into the future.

For at least two years, and possibly much longer as the UK's negotiations continue, nothing changes. Tuition fees agreed with current European research students will not be affected. This also applies to those due to commence study in the 2016/17 academic year.

If you want more information about how the UK leaving the EU may affect you as an EU student, please consult our international office pages.
