|The European Research and Innovation Days 2020 will take place September 22-24, 2020 as a fully virtual event.
Find here some more information on how to actively participate in the event:
- The event has two key areas: the Policy Conference and the Science is Wonderful! Exhibition. Each area offers unique possibilities to participate and interact with other attendees.
- Policy Conference: Game-changing talks and conversations with research and innovation leaders from across the programme. There will be plenary sessions and hub sessions organised around ten thematic hubs. Both have unlimited capacity.There will also be workshops and co-design sessions with a limited capacity for active participants.
- plenary sessions: plenaries cover the biggest topics of the event, and are a space for all attendees to come together, watch inspiring speakers and have a front-row seat to hear the prize-winners announced for the Horizon Impact Award, EU Prize for Women Innovators, EIC Horizon Prize for Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid and the European Capital of Innovation Award.
- hub sessions: hub sessions bring together the people at the forefront of science innovation around key themes to build links between important research and societal problems.
- workshops and co-design sessions: opportunity for in-depth, highly interactive discussions on specific public policy issues. Workshops for the Horizon Europe Hub will be in a co-design format. These participatory co-design sessions are a valuable way to connect citizens and specialists.
