UK extends Horizon Europe guarantee

The UK government has announced an extension to a November 2021 safety net package for Horizon Europe applicants.

The guarantee scheme aims to protect funding for UK researchers, businesses, and innovators, the UK has said. It means successful UK Horizon Europe applicants will be covered for calls that close on or before 31 December 2022, with the majority of grant signature dates expected before the end of August 2023.

Westminster says it is continuing to encourage the EU to formalise UK association, but released a set of contingency plans in July to be implemented if association is not possible.
