On 16th May 2022, UKRI published updated guidance  on accessing the underwrite guarantee funding for successfully awarded Horizon Europe projects. The UKRI systems will open as follows

EU Call Type UKRI Host System Opening date for UKRI Funding Route
Collaborative R&D grants (Pillar 2 and some Pillar 1 & Pillar 3 projects) IFS 16th May 2022
EIT KICs 2022 IFS 23rd May 2022

ERC Consolidator / Advanced 2021 Je-S 14th June 2022
MSCA DN 2021 Je-S July 2022 (tbc)

These routes are only open to successfully awarded  projects submitted to the calls for which the last legal date for signing the grant agreements is expected to pass before 31 December 2022. The Research Operations Office teams will be in touch with those Horizon Europe projects eligible to apply for UKRI funds via these routes in due course.  

Although dates have been announced for the system opening, UKRI are still to provide specific guidance on the EIT, MSCA, and ERC PoC calls. We will circulate once the guidance is released.  

The terms and conditions for ERC Advanced Grant and Consolidator Grant are expected to be similar to ERC Starting Grant which is already open for submissions through Je-S. The ROO FAQ page is continually being updated so please do check back regularly for updates.
