European Research and Innovation Days in a virtual format

The Research & Innovation Days can be followed online from 22 to 24 September. This makes the European Commission’s event more accessible than ever.

The European Research and Innovation Days is the annual flagship event of the European Commission, which brings together policy makers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens to discuss and shape the future in Europe and beyond. The 2020 edition will feature three days of intensive policy co-design with stimulating panels and opportunities to interact virtually.

A pandemic is no time to pause the European Research and Innovation. Therefore, this year’s programme has a focus on the idea that the research and innovation will be essential to a successful transition to a post-coronavirus world. The interactive sessions will let participants provide input on how research, innovation and funding can help propel Europe’s recovery and pave the way to a green, digital and resilient future. Among the matters that will be discussed online are topics like robotics, artificial intelligence, breakthrough innovation, and Horizon Europe.

The event is an opportunity to discuss ideas and solutions on how to get European Union (EU) economies back on track in a sustainable and inclusive way. Due to the situation related to COVID-19 this year’s format will provide an opportunity to connect and share data regarding the research and innovation achievements in the global response to the pandemic and build on the EU’s response. It will also be possible to get to know more about the achievements of European young talents, such as scientists and innovators who can get together to draw up projects and plans.
