UK businesses benefitting from Horizon 2020 research funding are 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’s online portal was launched in September 2018 after the government announced it would guarantee all successful UK funding bids submitted by public and private organisations before Brexit, including the EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme.
To date, there have been around 5,500 registrations to the portal out of a potential 8,200. Around 4,500 are from higher education institutions and around 1,000 registrations from businesses, research organisations, public bodies and charities.
