Horizon Europe Information Session 6/7 December 2023
Following the long-awaited UK association to Horizon Europe, the Research Office invites academic and professional services staff across the University on 6 and 7 December 2023 to information sessions led by representatives of the UK Research Office Brussels (UKRO).
Cambridge researchers’ participation in Horizon Europe calls has continued throughout the uncertainties after Brexit. The overall success rates of the University have remained high throughout Horizon 2020 and even improved for Horizon Europe to date. University’s average success rate across H2020 and Horizon Europe is between 1:4 and 1:5. On 7 September 2023, the UK Government and the EU announced the UK’s association to the Horizon Europe and Copernicus Programmes, to enter into force on 1 January 2024. Cambridge’s increased success rate indicates great potential for researchers following the UK’s full association to Horizon Europe.
The in-person and online information sessions address important legal and financial changes under Horizon Europe, upcoming funding opportunities, advice on consortia building, proposal development and assessment criteria as well as available support. They will cover the European Research Council (ERC) as well as collaborative, interdisciplinary funding calls under the seven thematic clusters (1) health, (2) culture, creativity, inclusive society, (3) civil security for society, (4) digital, industry and space, (6) climate, energy and mobility and (7) food, bioeconomy, natural resources, agriculture and environment.
The dedicated European Advisor for the University of Cambridge and the UK Marie Sklodowska Curie National Contact Point (UKRO) will present latest updates. The events will be held at the WestHub as well as online. In-person participation is encouraged where possible.
