In her Mansion House speech the Prime Minister made clear that the UK is committed to continuing cultural and educational participation with the EU. This would enable the UK to participate in key programmes alongside our EU partners to promote our shared values and enhance our intellectual strength in the world.

We have agreed a fair financial settlement with the EU enabling us to move to the next stage of negotiations, and will continue to benefit from EU programmes under this budget plan. Organisations that receive European funding can continue to bid for and receive funding until the end of their projects.
