Oxford University welcomes UK associate membership of Horizon Europe

September 08, 2023

Horizon Europe is the EU’s funding programme for research and innovation projects for the years 2021 to 2027. Associate membership grants UK-based researchers access to all of Horizon Europe’s funding opportunities except the European Innovation Council Fund (which is only available to countries participating in the EU’s financial instruments). Professor Irene Tracey, Vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford said:‘It is terrific to see UK researchers back at the heart of the world’s largest collaborative research programme. We were Europe’s most successful University for winning funds under the previous Horizon programme, and I fully expect the same level of imaginative and life-transforming projects under the new association.’Many Oxford researchers have been successfully applying to Horizon Europe and winning funds which so far have been distributed through the UK Horizon Europe Funding Guarantee. The University of Oxford was awarded the most funding of any UK university under Horizon 2020 which ran from 2014 to 2020, with crucial funding under-pinning critical research breakthroughs and impact across all four academic divisions, examples include:Discover more of Oxford’s research impact: https://www.ox.ac.uk/research
