The European Commission’s annual flagship event to shape the future of R&I will take place online

A fully online version of the European Research and Innovation Days will take place on 22, 23 and 24 September 2020. 
European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.
With our societies gradually lifting their lockdowns and recovery plans taking shape, we must now ensure that the transition to a post-corona society is sustainable, inclusive and resilient.

Research and innovation will be key to achieve this. This year's format will provide an opportunity to connect, take stock of research and innovation achievements in the global response to the pandemic and build on the EU’s response: worldwide coordination of excellent science for global health, social and economic recovery.

Join the event virtually

All of the sessions and actions showcasing Europe’s best and brightest research, science and innovation will be reimagined as an online happening featuring a high-level Policy Conference and the interactive Science is Wonderful! public exhibition.
Last year’s edition attracted more than 4,400 conference participants and 3,200 exhibition visitors. While the format and shape of the event have changed due to COVID-19, the impact of the event will be even more powerful.
In a crucial year, following an unprecedented global crisis, just ahead of the launch of Horizon Europe - the next research and innovation programme starting in 2021 - and an enhanced European Research Area, this event is a unique chance to discuss how research and innovation will benefit the future of Europe.
