UK participation in Horizon 2020

This collection brings together all statistics relating to UK participation in Horizon 2020.

Horizon 2020 is the current EU framework programme for research and innovation and runs from 2014 to 2020. Through this programme, organisations across Europe and wider (including businesses and universities), are able to work together to apply for funding for research activities.

These statistics provides information on UK participation as part of Horizon 2020 based on data extracted from the Commission’s database.

Future publications

These statistics are published to provide information on UK involvement in Horizon 2020. Recently, the European Commission has released a regularly updated data visualisation tool which has made these statistics (and more) available to the public directly: Horizon 2020 data tool.

The visualisation tool provides information on all countries and participants in Horizon 2020, not just the UK, and can be used to explore H2020 proposals, success rates, funded projects and participants.

We are reviewing whether there is a requirement to continue this publication of Horizon 2020 participation statistics - we may reduce the frequency or cease publication in the future. If you have any thoughts on the future of this publication please contact by the beginning of September. We will endeavour to implement any changes ahead of the next scheduled publication in October 2018.
