The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has released aggregated data on the UK's participation in Horizon 2020 to date.

According to the data, as at end-February 2017, the UK had the highest number of participations in Horizon 2020 of all countries, with almost 6,500 participations overall. In terms of the university sector, the UK is the highest ranked with 22% of total university sector participations and just over €2 billion awarded to date.

The UK received the second highest share of H2020 funding to date, securing 15.4% of all funds, including 20.6% of all grant funding awarded by the European Research Council (ERC).

Six of the top ten performing universities are based in the UK with the University of Oxford topping the ranking.

This result is testament to the strength of our European collaborations as well as the excellence of our researchers.
