This year, the European Research and Innovation Days will take place online on 23 and 24 June 2021.

Organised by the European Commission, this event brings together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond. Cooperation in research and innovation is essential to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and pave the way to a greener and more digital future.

2021 also marks the start of the new European Framework Programme Horizon Europe (2021-2027), the most ambitious EU research and innovation programme designed to implement and strengthen the European Research Area.

Building on the success of the last online edition, 2021 R&I Days will be again fully digital.
