Association to Horizon Europe will bring huge benefits to the UK. The Government has announced an additional £250 million in 2021/22 for Horizon Europe. An additional £400 million, earmarked at Spending Review for 2021/22 to help support government priorities, will help to pay for association to Horizon.

Government investment in R&D will reach £14.9billion in 2021/22, its highest level in four decades. UK scientists will now have access to more public funding than ever before.
