Horizon Europe: help for UK applicants

Contents

Overview

Horizon Europe is an EU research and innovation programme. It has a budget of €95.5 billion and runs until 2027.

If you’re a UK-based researcher or innovator, you can apply to most Horizon Europe funding opportunities on the same terms as EU-based applicants.

The UK’s association to Horizon Europe

In January, the government announced that the UK will associate to Horizon Europe.

The EU is still in the process of formalising the UK’s association. But UK-based applicants can begin applying straight away. You do not need to wait for the EU to formalise association.
