Ukraine became a new member of Associated Countries (AC) in March 2015. Since then, Ukrainian organizations have been able to fully participate in Horizon 2020 on equal terms with the EU Member States and other ACs.

Signed Association gives Ukraine a unique chance to significantly increase their participation in H2020. This is evidenced by the results of participation in the first 457 calls, where 579 Ukrainian organizations participated in the preparation of 1040 project proposals (1 333 participations), expecting EC contribution of 357.31 M€.

97  organizations are in 98 proposals on the MAIN LIST (125 participations), with EC contribution of 17.88 M€. In particular, Ukraine submitted 314 proposals for project co-ordinations, of which 13 were classified for funding (MAIN LIST) with EC contribution of 2.48 M€. These results classify Ukraine on the 7th place among Associated & Candidate Countries.

Detailed analyses show that 29% of UA participants are from HES (87 organizations with 392 participations in submitted proposals), while 43% are from PRC (328 with 575 participations) and over 21% are from REC (103 institutes with 284 participations). Finally, 44 PRC, 24 REC, 19 HES, 3 PUB and 7 OTH from a total of 97 organizations will participate in projects selected for funding.
