EU research funding 

The UK Government and the EU have confirmed that UK researchers can apply for Horizon 2020 funding until the end of 2020. In the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit the UK Government will underwrite existing European research grants. Further details on the impact of Brexit on applying for funding can be found on the ERIO website.

If you are planning to apply for EU funding the UCL European Research and Innovation Office (ERIO) can support you. 

The proposal writing consultancy service offers support from concept to final grant submission, including assistance in structuring and targeting the scientific section, the expected impacts section, writing the implementation, management and finance sections, and aiding in partner search.
