Funding announced to help the research and innovation sector address the impacts of the ongoing delay for UK association to the EU’s Horizon Europe programme.
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) will deliver £280 million in new funding to help address the impacts of the ongoing delay in UK association to the EU’s Horizon Europe programme.
Rapid, stabilising support
UKRI International Champion Professor Christopher Smith said: ‘The uncertainty over ratification of UK association to Horizon Europe is constraining the capacity of the UK’s outstanding universities and research organisations to retain and build the talented research and development workforce which will help the UK’s economy grow and our society to flourish.
While we await a decision on association, this much-needed and welcome investment will provide rapid, stabilising support to help maintain the UK’s international reputation for research and innovation.’
