The European Research and Innovation Days, Europe’s annual flagship event on the future of research and innovation, are starting and will take place online until tomorrow 29 September. This year they will feature more than 50 live sessions and connect more than 12,000 policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens.
The event covers the new European Innovation Agenda, deep tech talents, women founders and funders, the New European Bauhaus, young innovators, the European Year of Youth, the richness of European cultural creativity, the EU Missions and many more topics. The virtual European Research and Innovation Exhibition will showcase EU-funded research and innovation projects that are paving the way to achieve the goals of the EU Missions.
At the same time, the Horizon Village area will host a series of thematic “Houses” that address different aspects of Horizon Europe, the EU research and innovation programme for 2021-2027. Over the two days, the Commission will also award the Industry of the Future Award, announce new signatories of the Mission for Adaptation to Climate Change mission charter and kick off the development of the Horizon Europe strategic plan 2025-2027. The European Research and Innovation Days are open to everyone interested in research and innovation.
