The Bioeconomy Village – BIOWAYS at the Maker Faire Rome
The Bioeconomy Village – BIOWAYS at the Maker Faire Rome

Promoted by the BIOWAYS and STAR-ProBio H2020-EU projects, the EC-funded Bioeconomy Village at the Maker Faire Rome has achieved great success in terms of public involvement and participation.

Maker Faire Rome

Through the exhibition of products, examples, curiosities, thematic workshops and practical demonstrations, visitors to the Bioeconomy Village were shown how the bioeconomy is increasingly a part of our daily life.

Maker Faire Rome

In the nine thematic areas there were 43 national and European projects, research centres, organisations and associations.

The presence of 90 researchers, 35 of whom were always present and available at the exhibition area, made the bioeconomy and its applications easily understandable to the general public.

15,000 informative speeches and demonstrations took place!
