The European Research and Innovation days was a three-day event in Brussels, during which researchers, academics, businesses, decision-makers and parliament representatives from Europe and beyond took part in a co-design process to shape the priorities and strategic plan for the first four years of Horizon Europe, due to start in 2021.
The VPH Institute and the Avicenna Alliance were both well represented at the European Research and Innovation Days on 26 September 2019. In just one morning, our delegates had the chance to meet with several staff members of European Commission's DG Research & Innovation (DG RTD) who were genuinely interested in helping to put in silico forward in Horizon Europe, the next research and innovation programme.
This event was a perfect opportunity for our community to show our interest in the next R&I programme of the EU and to explain to EU policy makers what are the next steps to bring the use of computer modeling and simulation from the computer to the patient.
