Media statement in response to the UK rejoining Horizon Europe

Wellcome responds to the announcement from the UK Government will rejoin Horizon Europe, the EU's scientific research scheme and world’s largest research collaboration programme.

Dr Beth Thompson, Chief Strategy Officer at Wellcome, said: 

“Joining the world’s largest international research programme sets science in the UK and Europe up for success. Being able to easily collaborate across borders stacks the odds in favour of scientists looking for solutions to the world’s urgent health challenges.
“Reaching this point has required the EU and the UK government to recognise the global benefits that scientific collaboration brings. The leadership they have shown here will create a lasting legacy for health, the economy, and the UK and the EU’s place in the world.”
