Even though the situation with Brexit isn’t fully stabilised, the UK’s government has addressed the topic of current and future funding for HORIZON 2020 projects.
Based on the statement issued by the UK, the bids that are submitted before the end of 2020 will be eligible for Horizon 2020. UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has guaranteed to fulfil this promise. The funding will apply for the lifetime of your project.
UKRI will also deliver the funding guarantee to UK recipients of funding through the following programmes if required:
- Framework Programme 7 (FP7)
- Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS)
- Euratom Research and Training (Euratom R&T)
