The European Commission organised the EU Research & Innovation Days on 24, 25 and 26 September 2019 in Brussels, gathering Europe’s best researchers, scientists, innovators together with policy makers to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape.
This first annual policy event featured a high-level Policy Conference, an Innovative Europe Hub and the annual “Science is Wonderful” exhibition. It aimed to:
- bring together world leaders from industry, finance, academia and business to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape;
- engage stakeholders to co-create and build the strategic priorities for the first 4 years of Horizon Europe;
- mobilise EU citizens and increase general awareness and understanding of how important research and innovation are in addressing societal challenges.
Toñi Caro, Head of the DEUSTO International Research Project Office participated in the event and had the opportunity of discussing with Jean-Eric Paquet, European Commission Director-General for Research and Innovation, ways to redefine prosperity for our global village. As Toñi stated “deep behavioural change and a multilevel systemic approach is needed to boost fairer, sustainable and competitive societies”.
