Horizon 2020 is the largest ever European research and innovation programme, with a budget of over EUR 70 billion between 2014 and 2020.  The programme aims to ensure that Europe produces world-class science; removes barriers to innovation; and makes it easier for public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation. Call published under the 2018-2020 Work programme have a combined value of over €30bn

The aim of this session is to:

  1. Provide an overview of BREXIT and its impact on our European funding portfolio


Brexit:  Please note that, in the context of Brexit, UK organisations remain eligible to apply for EU funding until the UK leaves the EU.   If a Withdrawal Agreement is agreed as part of leaving, the UK will be eligible to participate in Horizon 2020 until the end of 2020, and for the lifetime of individual projects.  In the event of a “No Deal” Brexit, UK organisations will continue to be eligible to apply to and take part in most Horizon 2020 schemes on the basis of third country participation and, where proposals are successfully evaluated, should be able to receive funding via the UK Treasury Guarantee.
