    UK’s Returns to Horizon Europe

    If you’re based in the UK and wondering about your participation in Horizon Europe, we have fantastic news! The UK has secured association status, which means you’re still in the game. This status allows UK researchers, institutions, and businesses to access funds and actively collaborate on research and innovation projects within the Horizon Europe framework.

    All calls in Work Programme 2024 will be covered with certainty with the UK participating as a fully associated member for the remaining life of the program to 2027.
