On 6 and 7 July 2021, the European Commission and the European Research Executive Agency (REA) are organising a European Green Deal Cluster Event.
The event on "How can Research & Innovation help achieve climate neutrality?"will bring together excellent projects and researchers funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), as well as other research and innovation initiatives under the remit of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport. These include the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), European University Alliances, Erasmus+ and Creative Europe projects.
The Green Deal cluster event is part of the EU’s feedback-to-policy activities and convenes EU policymakers, researchers and experts to explore how R&I can help achieve the goals of the European Green Deal.
Over the span of an afternoon and a morning, you will be able to attend a mix of plenary sessions and parallel thematic panels, featuring policymakers and researchers working on biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and soil health, clean energy, eliminating pollution, climate action and green transport. The thematic panels' speakers will be different on day 1 and day 2, so do seize the opportunity to join all the sessions.
A Virtual Exhibition will showcase a great variety of additional R&I projects funded by the MSCA, the EIT, Erasmus+ and Creative Europe. We invite you to visit the Virtual Exhibition before and throughout the event, and to vote for your favourite project. The Virtual Exhibition winner will be announced at the end of day 2.

The MSCA Green Deal Cluster Event will be streamed on the event webpage. Please register in advance for a better experience.
