The High-Level Expert Group on “The Economic and Societal Impact of Research and Innovation” (ESIR) has been advising the Commission on how to develop a forward-looking and transformative R&I policy. Established shortly before the Covid-19 outbreak, the ESIR Group has provided stimulating inputs on how to chart our way from the crisis and leverage R&I to facilitate the twin digital and green transitions, boost Europe’s competitiveness and promote crisis preparedness.
ESIR’s “protect-prepare-transform” vision makes a strong case for a powerful transformative R&I policy in a post-pandemic world that can enable and accelerate the transformations of our economies and societies and support a just recovery.
Join us at this online event that will discuss ESIR’s work over the past two years on how Europe can “build forward better” and emerge stronger after the pandemic.
