A new system has been rolled out today as a first step towards supporting the continuity of funding for UK organisations with H2020 grants.

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020).

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is asking recipients of Horizon 2020 grants to input basic information about their awards into a bespoke portal, which went live at 9am today (27th September).  This will ensure that UKRI can keep UK researchers and businesses informed of the next steps if the government needs to underwrite Horizon 2020 payments.

The UK and the EU’s intention is that UK researchers and businesses will continue to be eligible to participate in Horizon 2020 for the remaining duration of the programme.

Those in receipt of Horizon 2020 grants are being encouraged to input their information into the system as soon as possible.
