Horizon 2020: Travel Vouchers

Helping you to collaborate across borders

InterTradeIreland’s Horizon 2020 travel schemes support those working on a cross-border basis in Horizon 2020 to travel both on the island and across the EU.

The Cross-Border Collaboration Voucher offers up to £500 to early-stage partnerships travelling across Ireland and Northern Ireland to scope out potential project ideas. We can even help identify potential partners for you – just contact horizon2020@intertradeireland.com or download an application form from this page.

The EU Voucher offers up to £350 per cross-border partner travelling to Horizon 2020 related events, consortium meetings or EU Commission brokerage events. Just select the relevant event from the calendar below or let us know about an alternative event on your application form.

‘The UK government has committed to underwrite Horizon 2020 funding for all successful UK bids submitted before exit, even if they are notified of their success after exit, for the lifetime of the projects.  UK participants that receive Horizon 2020 funding from the European Commission or have submitted a bid before EU exit and are notified of their success after exit will be covered by the underwrite guarantee, for the lifetime of the projects. The continued participation of UK entities in Horizon 2020 projects after exit in a no deal scenario would depend on the details and mechanism of participation as a third country.’  For full information go to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-participation-in-horizon-2020-uk-government-overview
