This event – the first of its kind – is shaping up to become the annual meeting place for key actors and actions driving a vibrant innovation economy in Europe. Bringing together Europe's best and brightest researchers, scientists, innovators and policy-makers to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape.

The event will feature three main elements:

POLICY CONFERENCE: 24 - 26 SEPTEMBER

Bringing together world leaders and policy-makers from industry, finance, academia and the entrepreneurial community to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape. The conference will be an extremely important part of the strategic planning process that will set the foundations for the launch of Horizon Europe (2021-2027) - the proposed €100 billion EU programme for research and innovation;

INNOVATIVE EUROPE HUB: 25 - 26 SEPTEMBER

This is an unparalleled meeting and exhibition space for inventors, investors, entrepreneurs and the whole range of services, businesses, civil society organisations, agencies and intermediaries that make European science technology so dynamic.

SCIENCE IS WONDERFUL! EXHIBITION: 25 - 26 SEPTEMBER

Free and open to everybody, the ‘Science is Wonderful!' exhibition is a celebration of the very best research and innovation Europe has to offer, from light-bulb moments to game-changing new technologies. Through hands-on experiments and face-to-face chats with researchers, visitors will learn about fighting cancer, global warming, hunger and drought, among many other pressing issues in our daily lives.
