UK organisations receiving EU research funding are being urged to register their details with the government so they can continue to receive funding if the UK leaves the EU with no deal. The government is warning that thousands of organisations still need to sign up for crucial updates on Horizon 2020 grant payments. 

A website managed by the public funding agency UK Research and Innovation is collecting details for all current EU research projects involving UK-based participants.

The UK has the second highest number of project participations in the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme – over 10,200.

“I want to ensure researchers and innovators have the confidence to push on with their great work, which is why I urge businesses to register their details on this simple online portal for Horizon 2020 grants. It takes just 10 minutes per grant for the data to be inputted,” UK science minister Chris Skidmore said.

Maintaining access to EU funding is a one of AMRC’s priorities to ensure that there are no negative impacts on medical research and patients as a result of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
