The Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation announces today the third edition of the European Research and Innovation Days to be held virtually on 23 and 24 June 2021.


This year’s edition will mark the official launch of Horizon Europe, the new

EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027). The event’s agenda

will further focus on new initiatives to strengthen the European

Research Area and it will highlight the importance of collective

research and innovation in the coronavirus recovery and for a greener

and more digital future.


Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said:

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. Join the conversation on 23 and 24 June and share your

thoughts on how Horizon Europe and the European Research Area can help

us to reach these goals.



The two-day event will bring together policymakers, researchers,

entrepreneurs, and citizens to debate and shape the future of research

and innovation in Europe and beyond. Like in previous editions, its

policy conference is expected to attract thousands of participants from

all over the world.


Up until the event in June, news and updates will be regularly shared on social media via #RiDaysEU as well as the event webpage.
