UK`s association to Horizon Europe

The European Commission and the UK Government have concluded negotiations and reached an agreement in principle on the association of the UK to Horizon Europe and Copernicus under the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.


UK researchers will be able to fully participate in the Horizon Europe programme on the same terms as researchers from other associated countries, including leading consortia, from the 2024 Work Programmes and onwards – including any 2024 calls opening this year.

For calls from the 2023 Work Programmes, the European Commission will continue to administer transitional arrangements and the UK will continue to provide funding under the UK Guarantee. UK and EU scientists and researchers can have confidence in continuing long-term partnerships with their counterparts.

For more details please have a look at the website of the European Commission and at the UK Research and Innovation Website.

Updated Guide to Third Country Funding in Horizon Europe

The European Commission has published an updated Guide on "Complementary funding mechanisms in third countries and territories". A partner from a non-eligible country (third countries and territories) can participate as an "Associated Partner" in Horizon Europe projects, but usually does not receive any EU funding and has to cover the costs elsewhere. Various countries have national funding for this, which is presented in the updated guide.
See the full guide on the European Commission's website

Pre-publication of the drafts for IHI Calls 4 and 5

The Innovative Health Initiative (IHI) has pre-published the drafts for calls 4 and 5. Six topics are currently planned for the two-stage Call 4 and four topics for the one-stage Call 5, which will be finalized and published in the coming weeks.
The topics are currently being consulted with the States' Representatives Group and the Science and Innovation Panel. They can therefore change significantly between the versions now published and the publication of the call. Applicants should therefore check the final, approved topic texts after publication of the call for proposals. Release is expected on July 27, 2023.

More information and the draft calls for calls 4 and 5 can be found on the IHI website.

For the two calls, the IHI organizes the virtual "IHI Call Days" where the participation rules and the topics are presented. In addition, there are pitching sessions for the IHI Call Day 5, where participants can present their expertise. Places are limited and registration is only possible until June 15, 2023.
