The European Research and Innovation Days 2021

The European Research and Innovation Days are one of the most significant online occasions celebrating innovation and research, that address to policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public. The aim is, for the participants, to engage in a discourse, regarding subjects pertinent to research and innovation, that have the potentiality of contributing to the transformation of the future to a greater extent.

European Research and Innovation Days: The Framework

These events occur on an annual basis and the European Commission is the organizer. This series of events made its first appearance in Brussels, in 2019. This year’s event will occur on the 23 and 24 of June, 2021; and, it will facilitate access to stakeholders from anywhere, as it will be conducted online. This digital event is an opportunity to contribute to the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic; and, explore options towards an environmental, more digital and fair EU, through research and innovation.

This Year’s Agenda

In this year’s event, more than 200 speakers will participate; and, over 60 live sessions will occur. There are prospects of expansion, as there is no limit to the network opportunities. In particular, in the framework of the event, a few thematics of the 2021 agenda will be the following:

  • A thorough showcase of Horizon Europe, where the participants will have the opportunity to learn about the new specificities and there will be provision of structural guidelines, regarding this research and innovation-based programme, by the Commission staff. Hence, this is a first-hand briefing that also foresees answer provision to certain queries.
  • Finally, in the framework of the European Research and Innovation Exhibition, more than 100 EU-funded projects will be presented, that their formation is in accordance with the Union’s priorities.
