EU exit

The government has announced that the UK will associate to Horizon Europe, the EU research and innovation programme that will run from 2021 to 2027. Association will give UK scientists, researchers and businesses access to funding under the programme on equivalent terms as organisations in EU countries. We therefore strongly encourage researchers, businesses, and innovators in the UK and worldwide to continue to work together in establishing global consortia to bid for funding. The UK will only be able to participate in programmes once the EU has finalised its Programme regulations.

For more information, please see the UKRI EU Exit pages, the UK government Horizon Europe guidance, the UKRO factsheet on UK Participation in EU Programmes for Research, Innovation and Higher Education (if you are an UKRO subscriber), or contact the relevant NCP.
