Horizon Europe Pump Priming Collaboration scheme, between UK and EU Partners (£5000 Vouchers)
The British Academy (BA), the Science & Innovation Network in Europe (SIN Europe), UKRI and KTN have announced the opening of a new scheme to support the development of collaborative activity between UK and EU/associated countries’ entities in Pillar 2 of Horizon Europe.
Further information on how to apply can be found on the British Academy Website.
The purpose of this call is not to implement the proposed projects that will be submitted to Horizon Europe, but to give the UK-based partners the resources needed to collaborate with EU organisations and stakeholders to further develop the idea and the market opportunities.
The expectation is that the funding will be utilised in a variety of ways but could include feasibility studies, application advice and training, partnership building, and dedicated time to take forward an application.
Proposals are welcome from research institutes and universities based in the UK, and proposals that involve working closely with any other type of organisations eligible for Horizon Europe funding (based in the UK and/or the EU/associated countries), including third parties, end users and similar bodies/organisations such as hospitals, libraries, regulators, commercial partners, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), creative industry partners, museums, local authorities and associations, NGOs, charities and companies are particularly encouraged.
