The Knowledge Transfer Network are running a webinar to provide a further update on the HMG Treasury Guarantee, which will underwrite UK participant Horizon 2020 grants (and other programmes listed below) if the UK leaves the EU without agreeing a deal.
This webinar is aimed at UK businesses, Research and Technology organisations and other ‘non-academic’ organisations who currently have active Horizon 2020 grants or have recently been notified of a successful grant.
There will be an interactive panel discussion, hosted by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
If the UK leaves the European Union (EU) without a deal, the government has guaranteed to fund all successful UK bids submitted to Horizon 2020 before the UK leaves the EU.
This guarantee will apply for the lifetime of projects. Grants from Research Fund for Coal and Steel, Framework Programme 7 (FP7) and Euratom Research and Training (Euratom R&T) are also covered by the guarantee. In 2018, the government extended the guarantee to cover all successful eligible UK bids to Horizon 2020 submitted between EU Exit and the end of 2020 if we leave the EU without a deal.
