The purpose of this notice is to provide an overview of the UK’s continued participation in EU programmes funded by the current EU Multiannual Financial Framework.
Under the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated with the EU, the UK will continue to participate in programmes funded under the current 2014 to 2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) until their closure.
This means that programmes will continue to receive EU funding across the programme’s lifetime. In many cases, funding will continue until the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020.
UK entities can continue to bid for new funding under the current MFF.
This means that FCDO’s financial assurance put in place to guarantee funding will no longer be required.
