European Research and Innovation Days 2021 – EU R&I Days

The 3rd edition of the European Research and Innovation Days, the European Commission’s flagship event for the future of R&I, will take place on 23 and 24 June 2021. In the context of COVID-19, the EU R&I Days 2021 will be organised in virtual mode. 

The major annual event for the future of R&I

On 23 and 24 June 2021, the European Commission is organising the 3rd edition of the European Research and Innovation Days online.

For the third consecutive year, this large-scale event will bring together high-level R&I actors: researchers, entrepreneurs, politicians, stakeholders, citizens, etc.

The aim? Strengthening the dialogue to shape the future of research and innovation in Europe. At the heart of the debates this year: the launch of Horizon Europe and the strengthening of the European Research Area, the post-COVID-19 recovery and the green and digital challenges.

Two components structure the EU R&I Days 2021:

  • An event platform with more than 70 online sessions on a wide range of themes and media, during which participants will be invited to contribute;
  • A virtual exhibition presenting a selection of the 100 best R&I EU projects.

Registration is free but mandatory, and is open here.

Euronovia participates!

As every year, Euronovia’s expert consultants will actively participate in the EU R&I Days. Join us for an online debate on the future of research and innovation :).

The EU R&I Days are particularly close to our hearts: indeed, in the margins of the 2019 edition, we participated in the launch of the European Association of Innovation Consultants (EAIC). At the heart of the issues: the recognition of professional EU project management. An initiative that will soon celebrate its 2nd birthday!
