- Statement: UCL’s participation in Horizon 2020 following the UK referendum decision to leave the European Union
The UCL European Research and Innovation Office's primary goal is to help UCL maintain its position at the forefront of European collaboration in science and technology.
In line with this goal and its position as London's Global University, UCL was the top performing university in the first two years of the Horizon 2020 programme (2014-15).
UCL has participated in over 650 EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) projects, has been awarded over 100 prestigious European Research Council grants and is consistently ranked amongst the top 5 university participants in EU collaborative research worldwide (#1 in the UK).
In support of UCL's strategic goals and its excellence agenda, the European Research and Innovation Office (ERIO) provides a range of professional services to the UCL community, particularly in relation to the €79 billion "Horizon 2020" European Framework Programme. These services include:
- Horizon 2020 information
- Proposal and pre-award support services
- Proposal management services
- Contract management services
- Project management services

Horizon 2020 Strategy
Building on UCL's significant success in previous EU Framework Programmes, ERIO is now implementing a strategy in which ERIO enables UCL to become the global leader in the coordination of EU research and innovation projects funded under the Horizon 2020 programme. This strategy requires:
- The successful continuation of ERIO's European Project Management service, which is currently managing a €148 million portfolio of 26 European collaborative projects funded under FP7 and Horizon 2020.
The implementation of services to support UCL researchers leading new Horizon 2020 proposals. These services include:
UCL is also a member of Vision2020: The Horizon Network, an innovation platform for research organisations and companies participating in Horizon 2020.
