European Research Day (ERD) is a one-day event that celebrates and promotes Europe as a hub for research and innovation. The event is designed so that 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 presents a unique networking opportunity through which they can meet researchers from their current regions to advance their careers and explore opportunities to collaborate.

The event is open to all European researchers and research administrators in North America, as well as current, previous and potential North American (Canada/US) researchers who have or would like to benefit from European research grants to further their careers, representatives from European Embassies, North American universities, industry & partners.

Objectives of the event:

  1. To promote ERA (European Research Area) as a pioneer in international collaboration for solving societal challenges
  2. To promote EURAXESS as a gateway to ERA as well as the EURAXESS portal as a comprehensive tool and platform for research funding opportunities, partnerships and collaboration
  3. To increase the EURAXESS North America membership base by offering targeted workshops to highlight the scope of services accessible through EURAXESS, including a one-hour workshop dedicated to proper use of portal and researcher’s profile.
