Speakers will include ministers, commissioners, members of European Parliament, researchers, as well as surprise guests each day. Several BBI JU projects will exhibit at the event.
Engaging stakeholders to co-create and build the strategic priorities for the first 4 years of Horizon Europe, will be at the heart of the 2019 European Research and Innovation Days.
Horizon Europe, beginning in 2021, is the successor to the current research and innovation framework programme, Horizon 2020.
Mobilising and engaging different stakeholders will result in work programmes for Horizon Europe that will better reflect the views and needs of citizens. These are then more likely to yield results in line with their values and expectations.
The 2019 European Research and innovation Days will provide opportunities for stakeholders to come together, deepen the dialogue and work across sectors and disciplines to help plan Horizon Europe.
