Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe (HEu) is the 7-year European Union scientific research initiative and will run from 2021 to 2027. The budget for HEu is €95.5 billion. Horizon Europe will keep the same focus on excellent research of its predecessor, Horizon 2020. Funding calls will be based on three main areas: Excellent science, Global challenges and European industrial competitiveness, and Innovative Europe. More information can be found at

As of 1 January 2024, the United Kingdom becomes an associated country to Horizon Europe. Its researchers will be able to participate in this research and innovation programme of the EU on the same terms as researchers from other associated countries and will have access to Horizon Europe funding. For more information go to:

InterTradeIreland can signpost you to a member of the Northern Ireland Horizon Europe Contact Point Network or the Irish National Support Network for Horizon Europe.
