UK Rejoins Horizon Europe: A New Dawn for Research and Innovation

UK and EU flags

The United Kingdom has officially rejoined Horizon Europe, the EU’s flagship research and innovation programme, marking a significant milestone in the UK’s research and innovation landscape. This development opens up a plethora of opportunities for UK organisations, with Decerna Limited positioned to play a pivotal role in this new chapter.

Horizon Europe: A Beacon of Opportunities

Horizon Europe, with a substantial budget of €95.5 billion running until 2027, stands as a beacon of opportunities for UK researchers and innovators. The UK’s association commenced on September 7, 2023, ensuring that UK applicants have a secure pathway to funding through the programme. The association will fully cover the Horizon Europe Work Programme 2024, fostering excellence in research across various fields, enhancing industrial competitiveness, and addressing global challenges.
