UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has agreed to a draft agreement for Britain to re-enter the Horizon Europe research programme in a meeting with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on 11 July, according to press reports. Officials say Britain will rejoin Horizon Europe and the Copernicus Earth observation program. However, it will not join Euratom’s nuclear energy R&D scheme, says Space Watch Global. Britain formally left all three schemes when it exited the EU in January 2020. After both leaders agree on the terms of the agreement, they will develop a legal text.
