European Research and Innovation Days 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.

The interactive sessions will let participants provide input on how research and innovation policy and funding can help propel Europe's recovery and pave the way to a green, digital and resilient future. Building on the success of last year, the 2020 edition will feature three days of intensive policy co-designing, thought-provoking panels and matchmaking opportunities.
