Innovation, in all its forms, will as always be the protagonist: from digital manufacturing to the Internet of Things, from robotics to artificial intelligence, from agritech to digital manufacturing, passing through big data and aerospace, up to to the latest discoveries of the metaverse and augmented reality.

With the Call for Universities and Research Institutes, Maker Faire Rome intends to promote innovation, through the diffusion of digital culture and the development of individual and collective entrepreneurship, rewarding the projects of State Universities and Public Research Institutes deemed most deserving.

Projects presented at the Call will also participate in any Contests promoted by Maker Faire Rome and/or by partners linked to the Call itself.
