The United Kingdom re-joins Horizon Europe

On 7 September, the European Union and the UK reached an agreement on the association of the UK with the 95 billion-euro research and innovation funding scheme.

UK-based organisations will be able to participate in or lead consortia from the 2024 Work Programme onwards, including any 2024 calls opening this year.

In a joint statement, the European Commission and UK government wrote “Association to Horizon Europe will further strengthen and deepen links between the scientific communities in the UK and the EU, foster innovation and enable researchers to work together on global challenges from climate to health.The UK Government and the European Commission look forward to enabling collaboration between their researchers in which the UK and the EU share a mutual interest, such as in new and emerging technologies.”
