Brexit: Register for continued Horizon 2020 funding

5 February 2019

Grant holders - have you registered yet?

UK businesses who are in receipt of Horizon 2020 grants need to register their details with the government if they wish to continue to receive funding in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

They should provide data about their projects on a portal managed by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The portal aims to ensure thatĀ UKRI has the information about projects and participants in order to underwrite guarantee payments if required.

Register your project on the Horizon 2020 underwrite guarantee portal.

To date, there have been around 5,500 registrations to the portal out of a potential 8,200. Around 4,500 are from higher education institutions and around 1,000 registrations from businesses, research organisations, public bodies and charities.

The UK government has underwritten the funding of Horizon 2020 projects if the UK exits the European Union without a deal. They are urging businesses who are in receipt of a grant to register now, to ensure the continuity of funding for their project.
