Text update 12 October 2023: We have updated the project finances section regarding how to record costs breakdown.
Please submit one application for each KIC in which your organisation is involved. Each application should cover all of your projects/activities for that KIC.
The application is split into 3 sections:
- Project details
- Application questions
The lead applicant must complete this section. Give your project’s title, start date and duration.
Application title: Please enter the title of the project, or “2022 [Name of KIC] activities” if covering multiple activities
Estimated timescales: You must enter a date in the future. If your project has already started at the time of submission to UKRI, there is a question later in application process where you can provide the actual start date. The Grant Offer Letter will be issued listing the actual date as the project start date and using the duration entered here.
Duration: Only costs that will be incurred in 2022 are eligible for this part of the guarantee, therefore the maximum duration is 12 months and cannot extend beyond 31 December 2022
For additional guidance on filling in this section please refer to the document ‘How to apply for guarantee funding for EIT-KICs 2022 activities’.
For these questions you will require:
- supporting letter from your KIC
- proof of success. This must include either a grant agreement issued by the KIC for 2022 and/or an alternative proof of success. Suitable alternative evidence could include an official letter or email from the KIC confirming that your project was accepted as part of the 2022 Business Plan for your KIC
- if applicable, evidence that your KIC has removed any ‘success fee’, share-transfer or equity conditions
Tell us where your organisation is based
Your organisation must be based in the UK or a British Overseas Territory.

EIT-KIC reference number and supporting letter
Please include either an EIT-KIC grant reference number or a unique identifier from the KIC that relates to your claim.
You must upload as an appendix a supporting letter from your KIC confirming the details of your claim. The KICs have been provided with a template for this letter which must be used for this purpose. This is a mandatory upload and failure to include this may delay your application.
UK funding contribution applied for
Enter the value of the final anticipated EIT contribution for 2022 (in GBP) that you would have received had the UK been associated to Horizon Europe.
Please convert the Euro value confirmed by your KIC in their supporting letter using the maximum exchange rate £1: €1.160354.
Proof of success
You can upload up to three documents supporting your claim as appendices. This must include either a grant agreement issued by the KIC for 2022 and/or an alternative proof of success. Suitable alternative evidence could include an official letter or email from the KIC confirming that your project was accepted as part of the 2022 Business Plan for your KIC.
Success fee and equity conditions
Activities that involve the payment of a success fee or that place share-transfer or other equity conditions on the UK partner are not eligible to receive funding from the UK Government’s guarantee. The KIC would need to remove these conditions for the activities to be in scope for the guarantee.
Removal of success fee and equity conditions
If your KIC activities involved ‘success fee’, share-transfer or other equity conditions, please confirm whether your KIC has removed these conditions in order for your activities to be in scope to receive funding from the UK Guarantee. In this case, please upload supporting evidence from your KIC to confirm that these conditions have been removed.
Enter your cost breakdown in GBP within the relevant cost categories.
