Horizon Europe Guarantee: Funding Route Dates Announced

The Horizon Europe guarantee is a short-term measure intended to address the delays in the formalisation of the UK’s association to Horizon Europe. Funding routes for successful applications to calls from the second wave and 2022 EIT KICs are opening from May 2022 and will use either the Innovation Funding Service (IFS) or Joint Electronic Submissions (Je-S).

For organisations with successful proposals for collaborative R&D grants that are in scope of the guarantee (all of Pillar 2 and some Pillar 1 and Pillar 3 calls), the Innovation Funding Service (IFS) opened, Monday 16th May 2022. 

Please note that for collaborative proposals you will need a copy of the project's signed grant agreement to complete your application. The IFS Horizon Europe Guarantee is an open-ended competition and applications can be submitted at any time.
