On 20th July 2022, the UK Government published a paper entitled Supporting UK R&D and collaborative research beyond European programmes.

The paper has three fundamental aspects to it

  • announcing a continuation of the UKRI underwrite for calls where the last legal grant signature date occurs after the end of December 2022
  • a series of interim measures to be adopted should the UK not associate to Horizon Europe
  • an outline of what a possible longer-term UK-based replacement to Horizon Europe might look like should the UK not associate

The UK Government reiterates its preference for the UK to associate to Horizon Europe, however it is prepared to put in place some transitional and long-term measures for all scenarios. 

The EU and International Team at ROO have produced an overview document of the UK Government’s measures to support the R&D sector to help researchers manage their applications in the event that the UK does not associate.
