Ensure your project is on the government’s online portal to be kept informed on the next steps.


UK businesses benefitting from Horizon 2020 research funding are urged to register their details with the government so they can continue to receive funding if the UK leaves the EU with no deal, Science Minister Chris Skidmore announced on the 29th January 2019.

Businesses must register on the government’s online portal here: for each project. It only takes ten minutes per project.

In order for UK Research and Innovation to inform you about what you need to do next, please register your contact details and funded project information today.


About Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.

Funding from EU programmes guaranteed until the end of 2020

The UK government announced at the end of July 2018 that it will guarantee funding secured by UK organisation through EU programmes, even in a no deal scenario. This means that successful bids for EU funding until the end of 2020 will receive their full financial allocation and will continue to receive funding over the project’s lifetime.
