The EU Commission has funded LHS research projects of varying scales. The TRANSFoRm project outlined above received over €7.5m from the EU Seventh Framework Programme, while other research collaborations have been funded under the European Cooperation in Science and Technology Programme (COST). The most relevant current funding programme is Horizon 2020, the biggest ever EU Research and Innovation programme, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). The UK Government has committed to underwrite this funding, within the UK, beyond Brexit.
