The UK Government published a Q&A on the Horizon 2020 Underwrite guarantee this week, which clarifies a few points on the parameters of the guarantee

 

 

At a speech recently, UK Science Minister Jo Johnson highlighted the continued importance of collaboration with European and international partners on major science, research and technology initiatives and reaffirmed the parameters of the UK Government’s underwrite of Horizon 2020 funding. In this, the UK Government has committed to underwrite the funding for all successful bids for competitive EU funding made by UK participants that are submitted before the UK leaves the EU.

 

The main points:

 

  • The UK Government guarantees awards where the application is submitted before exit and is subsequently approved. This includes proposals which are informed of their success but, at the point of exit, have not signed a grant agreement, and proposals which have been submitted before exit and that are only informed of their success following exit.

 

  • Two stage application processes are also included in the UK Government's underwrite commitment, provided that the proposal for the first stage of the application is submitted before the UK leaves the EU and that the application is subsequently successful.

 

  • you find a link to the Government Q&A  explaining  that the underwrite covers those schemes under Horizon 2020 which are administered in non-standard ways, including Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs), Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) and ERANETs for example
