Introduction to Horizon Europe

For those of you keen to understand the implications of Brexit for the UK research base, this excellent Overview of Horizon Europe – the EU’s next funding programme for research and innovation (2021-2027) – represents a useful starting point.

The main messages are as follows:

  • Academics and researchers in the UK will have equivalent rights to their Member State counterparts.
  • Academics and researchers in the UK will have access to all parts of the Programme – including ERC, MCSA and the majority of EIC.
  • The much-speculated-upon ‘exclusions’ will apply only in “exceptional and justifiable cases”. Areas where UK access might be more limited include quantum computing and space science.
  • Academics and researchers in the UK will have attendance and speaking rights on programme governance structures.
