The third edition of the European Research and Innovation Days was held online on 23 and 24 June 2021. This two-day event was organised by the European Commission and aimed at enhancing cooperation and discussion in the field of R&I by connecting policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and the general public in Europe.
As Commissioner Mariya Gabriel underlined, this year’s edition was marked by the launch of Horizon Europe, the 2021 – 2027 EU R&I framework programme:
“The 2021 edition of the European Research and Innovation Days could not have come at a more important time. Together, we can recover from the coronavirus pandemic and ensure a green and digital future for everyone.”
– Mariya Gabriel,
Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth
Furthermore, the 2021 edition of the European R&I Days focused on three main topics:
- strengthening the European Research Area (ERA);
- fostering the COVID-19 recovery;
- shaping a greener and more digital future for Europe.
