Funding Opportunity - Horizon Europe Pump Priming Collaboration between UK and EU Partners


Deadline: 13 Oct 2021 - 17:00 BST

This is a great opportunity to obtain funding to develop collaborations between UK and EU/associated countries’ entities in Pillar 2 of Horizon Europe, including CIVIL SECURITY FOR SOCIETY calls.

Applicants will need to identify a specific upcoming call within Pillar 11 as the focus of a proposed collaboration with the goal of submitting an application to that upcoming call building on this pump priming funding.

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.

Awards are available up to £5,000 and the call will remain open on a rolling basis until all funding has been utilised.

The deadline for submissions and UK institutional approval for the first wave of assessment is 13 October 2021 at 17.00 (UK time).

Further assessment will be undertaken in waves every two weeks with applications submitted by 27 October 2021, 17.00 (UK time) considered in a second wave, and then further applications submitted after (if funding remains available) considered every two weeks from 10 November 2021 onwards with the same 17.00 (UK time) deadline.
