EU funding opportunities

EU funding accounts for around 15% of the University’s Research and Innovation income. We have an excellent track record with over 230 awarded projects awarded under Horizon 2020. This includes 94 Fellowships and 24 collaborative projects as Coordinator (Lead Partner).

Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe (HEu) is the Framework Programme for research and innovation (R&I) between 2021-27. It is the largest ever EU Funding Programme with a budget of €95.5 billion. It provides a wide range of funding opportunities across the full R&I cycle, from concept, through proof-of-principle and towards implementation in society.

EU Team in RIS

The EU Team oversees and manages the University’s performance in Horizon Europe. Our team offers pre- award and post- award support and can support you through the complete project life-cycle. We can help to:

  • identify the right opportunity;
  • break down calls and topics to show what you need to address;
  • put together a competitive application;
  • set up the award;
  • run the legal, admin and financial management of the project.

Other Support Services

There are many University services who can help with the various aspects of EU proposals and awards. For example, Faculty Research and Innovation Offices assist with costing proposals and managing live budgets, whilst R&I Development Managers (RIDMs) provide additional proposal support for large grants.
