On 12 September 2018, the EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee considered the Commission’s Proposal for the next phase of the Euratom Research and Training Programme.
The Programme provides funding for a range of nuclear research and training activities that support nuclear safety and security and the decarbonisation of the energy system.
This Proposal covers the period 2021-2025, by which point the UK will have left the EU. It does include provision for non-EU countries to participate in the Programme, however, which is something the UK Government has said it wishes to do.
The Committee therefore decided to write to the Minister to ask for an update on negotiations on post-Brexit participation in the Programme, as well as for clarity on the Government’s concern in relation to a couple of specific aspects of the Proposal.
Update: on 31 October 2018, the Committee considered the Minister’s response to their letter. Members noted that details of the Proposal, and negotiations on it, are not expected until the new year and so wrote to ask the Minister to provide further information at that point.
Update: on 13 March, the Committee considered the Minister’s latest letter. As discussions on key aspects of the Proposal have yet to take place, the Committee decided to retain the Proposal under scrutiny and requested an update once negotiations had progressed.
