Text update 26 January 2023: we have updated the text to include new dates and agreement details.

The UK agreed a deal to associate to Horizon Europe on 7 September 2023. Therefore, the UK guarantee scheme has been extended to cover all calls under Work Programme 2023. The calls in Work Programme 2024 onwards will be covered by association.

This funding route is for collaborative research and innovation calls under Pillars 1, 2 and EIC calls under Pillar 3 for the Work Programmes 2021, 2022 and 2023. Guarantee grants whereby the last legal date for signing grant agreements is expected to pass before 31 December 2022 are being routed through a different IFS competition.
