Free to walk ‘Green Line’

September 12, 2013

Guidance recently issued by the European Commission relating to European Union funding for projects in Israel and the so-called “disputed territories” makes it clear that it is open to any Israeli institution whose “legal address” is within the 1949 armistice line (the “Green Line”) to apply for funding in respect of projects located anywhere in the territories (“Horizon 2020 rules may see Israel pass up research cash”, News, 5 September).

I myself have received such an assurance from the Commission.
