Horizon Europe is the EU's key funding programme for research and innovation. It has a budget of €95.5 billion and runs until 2027.
On 4 December 2023 the UK Government and European Commission completed the final steps of the UK's association to Horizon Europe.
UK organisations can apply for Horizon Europe funding with the assurance that all successful UK applications will be covered through the UK’s association (or through the UK Guarantee) for the remainder of the Horizon Europe programme.
UK researchers and innovators will be able to fully participate in the Horizon Europe programme on the same terms as researchers from other associated countries (including leading consortia) from the 2024 Work Programmes and onwards.
The UK Government's Horizon Europe guarantee remains active and covers all remaining Horizon grant calls up to and including work programme 2023 irrespective of the call closing or grant signature date.
Further information on Horizon Europe and UK participation is available on the UK Horizon Europe website
