Research and Innovation Services


European Research & Innovation Office

The European Research & Innovation Office (ERIO) works to keep University College London at the forefront of European collaboration in research & innovation. UCL was one of the leading participants throughout the European Union's €79 billion "Horizon 2020" funding programme, and will regain full access to its €95.5 billion successor, "Horizon Europe". ERIO is a unit of UCL's Award Services department within Research & Innovation Services.
