Brexit, end of transition period: what project partners need to know
The Withdrawal Agreement between the EU and the UK means that projects will be able to continue as planned, under the same arrangements and rules as before. Indeed, the Withdrawal Agreement means that UK will stay until the end of the whole Programming period, regardless of the current negotiations concerning future relationships.
As soon as the Withdrawal Agreement entered into force, the UK started its transition period which will end on 1 January 2021. The end of the transition period will bring changes to people’s life. Depending on the outcome current negotiations about the future relationship between the EU and UK, there might be adaptations needed also to Interreg 2 Seas projects.
The Q&A guidance that can be found here aims to clarify some questions coming notably from UK beneficiaries regarding their participation in 2 Seas projects after the end of the transition period.
Should UK beneficiaries have any specific questions, we strongly advise them to get in touch with the UK national authority and the UK territorial facilitators.
