The current situation is uncertain and in a constant state of flux. However as President Alice Gast has repeatedly affirmed, “Imperial is, and will remain, a European university”. The Research Project Management office encourage and we support coordination by Imperial researchers to continue to apply for European research funding.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr Radu Rautiu.

The following is information for those involved in existing Horizon2020 awards and for those looking to apply for future Horizon2020 awards.

For existing grants

Regardless of the outcome of the Brexit process, the UK government has committed to underwrite payments of Horizon 2020 awards.

In a ‘deal’ scenario, nothing will change for existing EU grant holders and those whose grants are due to begin. Funding from the European Commission will continue for the full duration of the grant.

In a ‘no deal’ scenario, the government’s underwrite guarantee, administered by UKRI, will apply to existing EU grant holders and those whose grants are due to begin, including ERC and Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions. Funding will continue.

For new grants

In a ‘no deal’ scenario, the government has committed to underwriting Horizon 2020 funding for all successful UK bids submitted before exit, even if they are notified of their success after exit, for the lifetime of the projects.

Under a no deal, UK researchers would be able to apply to and participate in all Horizon 2020 calls open to third country participants after the UK leaves the EU. The UK government has committed to funding UK participants’ funding in these calls for the full duration of their projects, even if they last beyond 2020.
