Discover SIMBA at Maker Faire Rome 2020

10 Dec 2020

SIMBA project partners from ENEA will represent SIMBA at this year’s Maker Faire Rome. Taking place this weekend from 11-13 December, the event will be held online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Maker Faire Rome will feature an international collection of exhibitors, performances, talks, and workshops that spans everything from agroecology and art to the circular economy and outer space. Over the course of the weekend there will be over 250 live presentations, over 300 maker exhibits and 9 thematic pavilions to explore and connect with makers.

Developed in 2006 in the Bay Area of San Francisco as a project of the Make: magazine, now Make: community. Maker Faire has grown into a large worldwide network of events that have turned into true platforms for innovation. Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition, is the largest edition outside the United States.

Project partners Annamaria Bevivino and Ombretta Presenti will represent the SIMBA project at a virtual exhibition stand titled ‘Dai “microbi” soluzioni innovative per migliorare le catene alimentari’ or ‘From “microbes” innovative solutions to improve food chains’ in English. The stand will be similar to a videoconference room where Annamaria and Ombretta will showcase the SIMBA project to attendees using a mixture of slides and videos. They will turn the spotlight on the goals and achievements of the project so far and highlight the role SIMBA research will play in creating a more sustainable future for us all.
