European Research and Innovation Days
European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship Research and Innovation event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.
This year, it is a fully virtual event.
You’ll be able to participate in the European Research and Innovation Days from your own computer through the online platform on this website.
By creating connections between cutting-edge scientific research and the most pressing challenges of a generation, the European Research and Innovation Days represent a unique opportunity to join the conversation and enact real change. From tackling the climate crisis to building a digital world that works for everyone, we’ll delve into the questions that shape who we are and the future we want to live in: it’s time to get involved!
The event is all about collaboration: bringing together individuals and experts from all areas to build connections and ignite a brighter future.
The policy conference
At the heart of the European Research and Innovation Days is our fully virtual policy conference.
Wide-reaching plenary sessions situate pivotal issues on the international stage and explore the vital links between them.
The rest of the conference is divided into 10 central hubs, each covering a central theme in EU research and innovation policy, from the European Green Deal to digitalisation and smart implementation.
