New UKRI system needs community input on Horizon 2020 grants
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is asking recipients of Horizon 2020 grants to input basic information about their awards into a bespoke portal, which went live on 27 September 2018.
This will ensure that UKRI can keep them informed of the next steps if the government needs to underwrite Horizon 2020 payments after the UK leaves the European Union.
The portal consists of a simple form asking for beneficiaries' organisational, contact and project details. It should take no longer than 10 minutes to fill out.
If you are a Horizon 2020 grant recipient, input your details now in the Horizon 2020: UK government underwrite guarantee portal.
For more information, you can download Horizon 2020 portal Q&As (PDF, 286K).
UK participation in Horizon 2020
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). As it stands, the UK and the EU's intention is that UK researchers and businesses will continue to be eligible to participate in Horizon 2020 for the remaining duration of the programme.
