Prohlášení britské Národní agentury i britského "ministra školství" z 10.1.2020 sděluje, že projekty 2020 se budou realizovat dle daných pravidel a vypadá nadějně, že se Velká Británie bude účastnit vzdělávacích programů Erasmus+ i v jeho další etapě v letech 2021 - 2027.
The UK National Agency would like to provide the latest statement from the Department for Education:
"There has been a lot of discussion about the UK’s continued involvement in Erasmus+ and any successor scheme and some misinterpretations after MPs voted against an opposition amendment that would have added a new clause on Erasmus+ to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
Chris Skidmore, Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation has tweeted to confirm that the vote does not end or prevent the UK from participating in Erasmus+ after leaving the EU and the UK remains open to participation and this will be part of future negotiations with the EU.
The full tweet is available.
As the Prime Minister has made clear, the Government wants to work to build academic cooperation between the UK and the EU. The UK government wants to ensure that UK and European students can continue to benefit from each other’s world-leading education systems. Under the proposed Withdrawal Agreement students, young people and learners will be able to participate fully in the remainder of the current programme and organisations continue to bid for Erasmus+ funding to the end of 2020. Organisations should continue to apply for funding as usual. As stated in the Political Declaration, the UK is open to participate in certain EU programmes, such as the next Erasmus+ programme (2021-27), if it is in our interest to do so."
