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. Speakers will include ministers, commissioners, members of European Parliament, researchers, as well as surprise guests each day.
Aim of the event
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.
Session: Bio-based economy – innovations in practice
This session will look at bio-based innovation: main challenges and potentials (research, macro-regional (Bio-EAST), industrial and environmental aspects), and future R&I (Intervention Area 6.4 “Bio-based innovation Systems”, and potential European Partnership for a Circular bio-based Europe). Ignacio Martín, coordinator of POWER4BIO, will moderate this session.
