The successful bid for the grant ensures the UK will continue to benefit from its own contributions to the EU under the Withdrawal Agreement.

Financial support is being provide to the UK and 18 EU members states as part of the complete mobility package – with a total funding allocated across Europe of €150m.

The UK’s successful bid equated to €34m of the total funding.
