Government funding expert (EU/UK) Gary Bridgeman believes that international collaboration leads to better solutions for the challenges that we are facing as a society. He calls himself specialised in EU funding Horizon 2020.
First people had to hear the reality that there will be no 350 million pounds for the NHS. One after the other lie came on the surface and several people at last came to understand that those funds they got from the European Union they can now forget and Worse, they shall not have to hope to receive such amounts of subsidies from their own government.
Andrew RT Davies claimed Wales would be better off financially outside the EU. Now he may proof it.
If they would have listened more to the economics and to the real advisers of the European Union and to the politicians who did not play the clown or pulled the emotional and popular string, their eyes would have gone open earlier and the votes would be totally different.
Certain Britons may have the hope their country could become an associated country to Horizon 2020, with the same access and funding rules as other members, but this is something where the European Union has to be very firm and clear, that when having spoken out to leave it has to be leave and not any more counting on presents from the European member states.
Though the referendum is legally non binding, and there are various political forces at play to try to overturn the result, force a general election or have a second referendum based different terms from the EU, having a second referendum is not at all a good idea and will create an opportunity for people to say the whole European model is a big undemocratic farce.
British economy was already slowing down and the effects of Brexit shall not make it better, but the opposite. The Britons have voted and the gamblers have lost. Now they shall clear up their own mess and the broken glasses.
Great Britain may want to become a member of the European Economic Area but that shall be at a higher cost than having staid a member of the European Union and with less advantages.
It may well be that EU will continue to fund projects in Wales up until the UK leaves, but it would better stop all further funding to Great Britain. The projects planned for investment after 2018 just have to be cancelled, to be taken seriously by the citizens of the other 27 member states.

David Cameron has come out saying that the UK cannot guarantee Welsh EU funding following the Brexit vote.
Wales’s is currently in receipt of structural funding for the Valleys and West Wales up to 2020. Of the £1.8bn committed, some 40% has yet to be allocated. There is little hope that this money will continue to be allocated past 2018 unless the UK stays as a full member of the EU.
European Structural Funds in Wales have created 37,000 jobs according to the EU funds in Wales website.
This for me is one of the tragedies of the result of the referendum, EU structural funds are only available to full EU members. Since the objective of these funds is to correct imbalances of economies and social cohesion between European regions.
Even though the UK is a net contributor to the EU, Wales received most of the return EU inward…
