​European Research Council UK National Contact Point

The ERC National Contact Point is a service for anyone who is currently based in the UK or who wishes to apply with a UK-based organisation for an ERC grant. Services comprise:

  • A query service, which you can contact via telephone or email. We can answer questions on any aspects of the ERC programmes, including questions relating to call dates, eligibility, the application process, results and post-award processes.
  • A series of training events for potential applicants to the different schemes. These are held in venues across the UK and will be advertised on this portal​ when they open for registration.

At present, the status of the UK in the EU and therefore also in Horizon 2020 remains unchanged. The UK Government provides an overview of the UK's relationship with Horizon 2020. This is followed by a Q&A document, which clarifies the UK's eligibility to participate in Horizon 2020.

The ERC UK National Contact Point is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
