The European Commission’s Horizon 2020 (H2020) funding programme for research and innovation has now been running for 4 years and still has another 3 years left to run. With our departure from the European Union expected to be completed in March 2019, there has been much uncertainty on what this will mean for our participation in and eligibility for this unique international funding stream.

We have had reassurance from the UK Government and the European Commission that UK researchers continue to be eligible and will not be disadvantaged during the evaluation process. Further to this we have had positive messages from the ongoing negotiations that both sides would like the UK to continue participation until the end of the H2020 programme.

If you would like to find out more about the H2020 funding opportunities on offer along with expert advice on what to consider when developing an application then come along to our open session on Friday 26th January at 11am in Richmond Building.

The session will be presented by Andreas Kontogeorgos from the UK Research Office (UKRO) and will also highlight what we know so far about the successor programme to H2020, at the moment known as FP9.
