Terms used in table

Collaborative Horizon Europe Guarantee Grants (hosted on Innovation Funding Service)

This includes guarantee funding for all Horizon Europe grants that are not funded by the European Research Council or the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The majority of grants under this heading support international collaboration between multiple countries and research and innovation aiming to address global challenges.

European Research Council Guarantee Grants

This includes guarantee funding for all Horizon Europe grants funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The UKRI grant replaces the original ERC award and supports a pioneering research project led by an exceptional researcher.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Guarantee Grants

This includes guarantee funding for all Horizon Europe grants funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). The UKRI grant may replace the original award or support UK participation in an international project. The grants support international mobility for exceptional researchers and projects.

Applications submitted and verified

This is the number of applications that have been submitted to UKRI and have had the initial checks to confirm that they have been submitted to the correct call and have an eligible Horizon Europe grant.

Value of grants requested in verified applications

This is the total amount of funding requested across all the verified applications submitted to UKRI. We intend to process and approve these applications and award this funding.

Grant offer letters issued

This is the number of applications that have been processed and have had a grant offer letter awarded. This allows the project to begin.

Value of grant offers issued

This is the total amount of funding committed by UKRI to the projects that have been issued their grant offer letters. This funding will be spent over the lifetime of these projects, paid by UKRI in regular intervals as set out in the Horizon Europe Guarantee guidance.
