Welcome to the Horizon Europe Cluster 6: Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment blog. Whilst we might not win the prize for the snappiest title, I think that we certainly come top of the league in the range of critical subject areas that are being addressed under Horizon Europe to support the European Green Deal.
Opportunity for UK academics, businesses and the public sector - The UK will associate to Horizon Europe so UK organisations can apply for funding on the same terms as organisations from Member States. The UK will contribute £2 billion per year to the overall Horizon Europe budget.
The new Horizon Europe Cluster on Climate, Energy and Mobility represents an excellent opportunity for the UK in the context of our net zero target and The Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution. The Cluster brings together climate, energy and mobility RD&D to enable greater collaboration and cross-cutting activity in these highly interlinked areas.
Good news, the final version of the Horizon Europe work programme has landed we can explore the collaboration opportunities. In Horizon 2020, the UK received over €850 million from equivalent calls, so continuing on that success, the UK has a lot to offer and gain. Building on a global vision and with an emphasis on making a Europe more resilient, green and digitally transformed, Cluster 4 is at the heart of this effort.
I am pleased to announce the availability to UK innovators, working in academia, industry, research organisations and public bodies, a €1.6 billion funding opportunity through the EU Commission’s Horizon Europe Civil Security for Society Work Programme (Cluster 3).

Monday, 23 March 2020 is a date that will be etched into the records of British history. The day we locked down. Since then, COVID-19 has turned the world upside down - taking millions of lives and disrupting families, societies and economies.
I joined the Transforming Food Production (TFP) team just over a year ago, after spending five enjoyable years with the KTN Agri-food team. I helped many individual companies on their funding journey, but, while I regularly witnessed SMEs winning the funding ‘battle’ by securing a collaborative R&D project, they only had a chance of winning the funding ‘war’ once they secured private investment.
