A newly published document from the European Commission offers more details on the UK’s participation in the Horizon Europe programme. The United Kingdom is expected to become an associate country in the EU’s seven-year programme for scientific research and innovation, Horizon Europe.

UK already eligible

As the first funding calls under Horizon Europe are launched, the new Q&A-style document confirms that UK applicants are already eligible to apply. The United Kingdom will therefore have the same rights and obligations, including financial, as other Horizon Europe associated countries.

This means that UK researchers and entities including universities, research centres, innovative businesses and industry, will have full rights to participate in the first calls for proposals under the Horizon Europe Framework Programme as soon as they are published on the European Commission’s Funding & Tender opportunities website.

This development includes future funding calls financed by the Marie Curie-Skłodowska Actions.

The FAQs document explains the main features of the UK’s association with Horizon Europe.
