Webinar: Accessing the UK government Horizon 2020 Guarantee

22 October 2019


Register for a chance to discuss the guarantee, what you can do to prepare, and more

The Knowledge Transfer Network is hosting a webinar on 24 October 2019 that will help explain what you need to know to access the UK government funding guarantee.

This webinar is aimed at UK businesses, research and technology organisations and other ‘non-academic’ organisations who currently have active Horizon 2020, Research Fund for Coal and Steel, Framework Programme 7 (FP7) and Euratom Research and Training (Euratom R&T) grants or have recently been notified of a successful grant.

There will be an interactive panel discussion, hosted by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The webinar will focus on the guarantee, provide practical steps for how to access it and give you the chance to ask any questions you have.

If the UK leaves the European Union (EU) without a deal, the government has guaranteed to fund all successful UK bids submitted to Horizon 2020 before the UK leaves the EU. This guarantee will apply for the lifetime of projects. Grants from Research Fund for Coal and Steel, Framework Programme 7 (FP7) and Euratom Research and Training (Euratom R&T) are also covered by the guarantee. In 2018, the government extended the guarantee to cover all successful eligible UK bids to Horizon 2020 submitted between EU Exit and the end of 2020 if we leave the EU without a deal.

The webinar will take place on 24 October 2019 between 12:00 and 14:00 UK time. Register now to attend.
