Apply now for Horizon 2020, government urges

29 January 2019

Facilities involved in research projects have been advised to apply for Horizon 2020 funding through the UK government.

The intention behind the advice is to ensure continuity of supply as the UK prepares to leave the EU.

While it has received 5,500 registrations from UK public and private organisations, the government says there are thousands more that have not signed up to date.

This will be beneficial for those already in receipt of Horizon 2020 funding to ensure that they continue to receive the benefits in future.

UK businesses can submit registrations through the government's online portal, which it launched in September last year after announcing it would guarantee all successful UK funding bids received prior to the UK leaving the EU.

Science and Innovation Minister Chris Skidmore said registration would see companies receiving benefits regardless of whether a deal was agreed prior to Brexit.

"I want to ensure researchers and innovators have the confidence to push on with their great work, which is why I urge businesses to register their details on this simple online portal for Horizon 2020 grants.

"It takes just 10 minutes per grant for the data to be inputted and more than 5,500 registrations have already been received," said Mr Skidmore.

The portal is managed by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and can be accessed here.
