The European Commission and the UK formally signed the association with the Horizon Europe and Copernicus research programs on December 4, 2023.
The association came into force on January 1, 2024, so that from this point onwards, institutions from the United Kingdom will receive funding from Horizon Europe after a successful application and not from national funds as before. They will also be able to coordinate a project from 2024.
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research and Innovation has published a strategy paper on artificial intelligence (AI) in science. The paper deals with challenges such as scientific integrity, preventing technology misuse and harnessing the power of data.
The goals of the strategy are to exploit the enormous potential of AI and address the concerns of citizens. To this end, the introduction of AI should be accelerated by improving access to data and computing power. In addition, the influence of AI on the research process should be monitored and controlled.
