European Research and Innovation Days 2019
September 24 @ 8:00 am - September 26 @ 5:00 pm
European Research and Innovation Days is the first annual policy event of the European Commission, bringing together stakeholders to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape. They are scheduled for September 24-25-26, 2019 in Brussels.
The event will be central to finding research and innovation solutions for this great transition by working across polices, setting the direction, spurring innovation and triggering investment. It will be the moment for all stakeholders to meet and co-create the strategic priorities for the European Commission’s investment in research and innovation.
Speakers will include ministers, commissioners, members of European Parliament, researchers, as well as surprise guests each day. Details of speakers will be updated in the coming months as the programme takes shape.
Engaging stakeholders to co-create and build the strategic priorities for the first 4 years of Horizon Europe, will be at the heart of the 2019 European Research and Innovation Days.
The EU’s main funding instruments for research and innovation in Europe are the successive multiannual framework programmes. The current framework programme Horizon 2020 will be succeeded by Horizon Europe (2021-2027). The success of these programmes has grown over the years. Every euro invested by Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe can potentially generate a return of up to €11 of GDP.
