European Research & Innovation Days 2020
September 22 - September 24
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.
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. It’s a unique chance to discuss how research and innovation will benefit the future of Europe just ahead of the 2021 launch of Horizon Europe - the next research and innovation programme - and a revitalised European Research Area.
The EU Green Deal and the Ocean at R&I Days 2020
The EU Green Deal is one of the main topics to be covered over the three days, with specific sessions scheduled as part of HUB 2, and the Ocean is going to be a critical area for Horizon Europe (as we have also seen on Blue-Cloud). Here are some of the most relevant sessions to the marine research community.
