European Research and Innovation Days, 24-25 September 2019, Brussels

The European Research and Innovation Days is the first annual policy event of the European Commission, bringing together stakeholders to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape. It will be a gathering of Europe’s best and brightest researchers, scientists, innovators and policy makers. The event will be held at the iconic venue KANAL-Centre Pompidou, located on Quai des Péniches / Akenkaai in Brussels, Belgium on 24, 25 and 26 September 2019.

It involves a policy conference, innovative hub and the free and open exhibition ‘Science is wonderful’. The Revive-project will showcase a refuse truck running on hydrogen as a real tangible outcome of the FCH2 JU and H2020 support in front of the venue.

A key challenge for Europe is delivering the next great transition of our economy, society and planet to secure a sustainable future that ensures the wellbeing of citizens.

The event will be central to finding research and innovation solutions for this great transition by working across polices, setting the direction, spurring innovation and triggering investment. It will be the moment for all stakeholders to meet and co-create the strategic priorities for the European Commission’s investment in research and innovation.

At the same time, the event aims to mobilise EU citizens and increase awareness of how important research and innovation are in addressing the challenges that face society. It will include a free exhibition to showcase and celebrate the very best EU research and innovation has to offer.
