The European Commission has announced the first in a series of future annual conferences on EU research and innovation.
The European Research and Innovation Days 2019 will take place from 24 to 26 September in Brussels and will enable representatives of different stakeholders to contribute together and across sectors and disciplines to the shaping of the forthcoming Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe.
The conference will consist of three parts:
- a "Policy Conference", which will bring together leading representatives from industry, finance, academia and research,
- an "Innovative Europe Hub" in which inventors, company founders, investors and civil society organisations can exchange and network,
- an exhibition entitled "Science is Wonderful", which will be open to the general public and is intended to make research and its effects directly tangible.
