Information for EC Grant Recipients (FP7 and H2020)

On 27th September UKRI launched a new portal as a first step towards supporting the continuity of funding for UK organisations which have been awarded grants from the EC Horizon 2020 Programme. UKRI is asking recipients of H2020 grants to input basic information about their awards into the portal. 

However, please note that the Departments and/or PIs ARE NOT required to input this information, as this will be done by the Research Operations Office.

For any further clarification please do not hesitate to contact the EU team via
