As the agenda shows, the first session will provide updates on UK’s participation to Horizon Europe as well as highlight schemes and novelties of the 2023-2024 work programmes. We will also have past recipients of Horizon 2020 grant and Horizon Europe awardees to share their top tips of securing funding including experience in accessing UK Horizon Guarantee support. 

The second session will focus on the new lump sum approach and blind evaluation pilot in 2023/2024.  Both the lump sum funding and blind evaluation are important changes for some parts of the programme.  Knowledge of these is essential for those wishing to apply for relevant calls, as failure to follow the new rules/process could result in proposals being ineligible.

  • To receive the most recent updates about the status of UK’s association to Horizon Europe
  • To obtain an overview of the Horizon Europe Work Programme for 2023-2024
