On 13th May 2024, ERC Advance 2023 and MSCA Doctoral Networks 2023 will open for grant submissions through the UKRI Funding Service. All open Je-S submission routes for Horizon Europe guarantee funding are due to close at 4pm on 17 May 2024, with the exception of the ERC Proof of Concept 2023 which will close in June 2024.

Once the Je-S routes are closed at 4pm on 17 May 2024, the UKRI Funding Service routes will be opened on the same day for:

  • 2023 MSCA Citizens
  • 2023 ERC Starting Grants

If not, the application will need to be submitted using the UKRI Funding Service route. The submission process on the UKRI Funding Service will require the same attachments and documentation as in Je-S.
