European Research Funding

Most European Union research grant funding is delivered through seven-year research and innovation work programmes. The new funding programme is Horizon Europe (2021 – 2027).

The UK Government and the European Commission have reached an agreement in principle on the association of the UK to Horizon Europe. For more information, please see our latest Horizon Europe update. This means that currently UK-based researchers are eligible to apply to take part in EU-funded collaborative projects (including as lead institution), and to apply for ERC and Marie Skłodowska-Curie funding.
