The European Research Day (ERD) is an event where European researchers outside of Europe meet, discuss and exchange concepts about their research projects, professional and personal experience in their respective diasporas and overall career path. It also presents a unique networking opportunity through which they can meet researchers from their current regions to advance in their careers and explore opportunities to collaborate.

This one-day event will celebrate and promote Europe as a hub for research and innovation through strategic interdisciplinary training workshops. The event will be open to all European Scientific Diasporas in North America, as well as current and/or previous American/Canadian researchers who have benefited from European research grants to further their careers (namely MSCA and ERC fellows), representatives from European Embassies, US/Canadian universities, industry and partners of DISCOVERY - a H2020 project promoting EU-North America dialogue on ICT policy, cybersecurity and funding mechanisms for transatlantic collaboration in research and innovation.
