UCL’s Vice Provost Office (Research, Innovation & Global Engagement), Research and Innovation Services, and European Institute are delighted to invite you to join us to celebrate UK association to Horizon Europe and to consider how we make the most of this at UCL. 

UK association to Horizon Europe presents opportunities for UCL researchers to build and re-establish strong collaborative links with institutions around the world and obtain funding to support critical work on pressing global challenges. 

With association, UK researchers will be able to fully participate in Horizon Europe on the same terms as researchers from other associated countries, including leading collaborative consortia, from the 2024 Work Programmes and onwards (including any 2024 calls that opened in 2023).
