Today (Thursday 1 September) the UK Government announced an extension of the Horizon Europe guarantee to a third wave of eligible, successful UK applicants to Horizon Europe. Government extends Horizon Europe financial safety net - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) 

The announcement confirms that the guarantee will be extended to cover all Horizon Europe calls that close on or before 31 December 2022, with majority of grant signatures expected before the end of August 2023. Details regarding the scope and terms of the extension are available on the UKRI website.

This means that individual and collaborative projects can go ahead as planned and provides reassurance for those who are about to apply and/or join consortia. Eligible, successful applicants will receive the full value of their funding at their UK host institution for the lifetime of the grant. 

Association to Horizon Europe remains the UK Government’s preference and continues to do everything to secure this, including entering into formal consultations with the EU with the aim of finalising UK association as soon as possible.
