We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

UK Research Office (UKRO)

The UK Research Office (UKRO) is the European office of the UK Research Councils and is based in Brussels, Belgium. UKRO's mission is to maximise UK engagement in EU-funded research, innovation and higher education activities.

UKRO delivers a subscription-based advisory service for research organisations. UKRO’s sponsors and subscribers benefit from:

  • access to the UKRO Portal with daily news updates and resources on EU funding for research, innovation and higher education
  • a dedicated European Advisor query service and annual visits
  • training courses and the UKRO conference
  • a meeting room facility in Brussels.

UKRO also provides Horizon 2020 National Contact Point services on behalf of the UK Government for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) and the European Research Council (ERC). These services are available to all.

In addition, UKRO offers publicly available information and updates on UK participation in EU funded programmes in the context of Brexit.
