EU portal launch
UK Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 portal launch on 27 September 2018.
Show/hide more details on the EU portal launch
As a first step towards supporting the continuity of funding for UK organisations which have been awarded grants from Horizon 2020, UK Research and Innovation is asking recipients to input basic information about their awards into a bespoke portal.
This will ensure that UKRI can keep UK researchers and businesses informed of the next steps if the government needs to underwrite Horizon 2020 payments. As a responsible government, it is right that we plan for every eventuality.
The Portal was launched on 27 September 2018.
If you are in receipt of any grants please email the UK Research and Innovation Funding Service team who will be happy to help.
Bank clearing dates
For all Research Council payments scheduled between October 2018 and March 2019, please refer to the bank clearing dates.
