UK to launch dispute proceedings against EU this week for breaking Brexit trade deal

17 Aug    Finance News

The British government is planning to launch formal dispute proceedings against the European Union as soon as this week.

The UK thinks Brussels is breaking their agreed post-Brexit trade agreement by excluding Britain from three international science projects, according to Bloomberg News.

Britain is furious that the EU refuses to grant the UK access to its Horizon Europe research fund, its nuclear watchdog Euratom as well as the bloc’s earth observation project called Copernicus.

UK-based scientists are no longer able to access the EU’s £80bn science programs, much to the dismay of Britain’s academic community.
