The eighth edition of Maker Faire Rome, the European Edition, was held digitally from 10 to 13 December.
Eni was the main partner at the event, which included a new and free format under the banner of “fully digital”. With this in mind, Maker Faire hosted a platform where the pavilions were thematic itineraries and the stands were internet pages, where exhibitors could interact with users as they would at a traditional fair. The visitor experience was rounded off with a calendar of live events, talks, webinars, workshops and conferences on the main topics.
The most important innovation event in Europe was a significant opportunity for Eni to showcase its proprietary technologies to the maker public, such as Waste to Fuel, which is used to produce biofuels using the organic fraction of municipal solid waste or the ISWEC system, based on wave energy. It is also a chance to share research projects such as the use of the HPC5 supercomputer, that contributes to the research against Covid-19, and to promote initiatives such as Joule, Eni's business school and JUST, the path towards sustainability for our supply chain.
