The ERC will take part in the annual European Research and Innovation Days, the European Commission’s flagship event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.

This year’s European Research and Innovation Days will focus on discussing and shaping new solutions to strengthen Europe’s resilience and its strategic autonomy. Join the event to debate about how research and innovation deliver on the European Commission’s priorities: the new European Innovation Agenda, the European Year of Youth, the richness of European cultural creativity, the EU Missions and many more topics.
