About Brexit

The UK has left the EU with a withdrawal agreement. The transition period began on 1 February 2020 and will end on 31 December 2020. During the transition period, the rules will be essentially the same as before the UK left. Read more about what this means for e.g. funding of research projects and applications. 

Third country participation in H2020

Applicants from non-EU countries (third countries) are always free to take part in Horizon 2020 programmes – even if the call for proposals or topic text do not state this explicitly. Associated countries and specified third countries are automatically entitled to funding. Others, including industrialised countries and the BRIC countries, may only be granted funding if:

Funding is provided for in a bilateral scientific/technological agreement or similar arrangement between the EU and the country where the applicant is based.

The call for proposals clearly states that applicants based in such countries are eligible for funding.

Their participation is deemed essential for carrying out the action by the Commission or the relevant funding body (if one or several of the following conditions are met: 1) funding is provided for in a bilateral scientific/technological agreement or similar arrangement between the EU and the country where the applicant is based, 2) the call for proposals clearly states that applicants based in such countries are eligible for funding, 3) their participation is deemed essential for carrying out the action by the Commission or the relevant funding body).
