The event will also be the occasion to reward the best ideas from the last event, listen to talks by key staff within the Group, and explore digital transformation themes. The goal of Epta and FabLab is to make media and knowledge available to young professionals so that they have the opportunity to express their creativity and develop their most ambitious projects. Among the projects from the last event during the exclusive TEDxCortina, were the "Virtual Bob", a simulator able to replicate the experience of a true descent on ice on a bob, "Open RC", for the construction of remote-controlled cars thanks to the sole use of a 3D printer and "Senior Key-Pad", a mouse to simplify the use of the computer for the elderly.

To participate in the event you must register at the following <a href="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1eZLQqJ77SstbZYZGG9BwfBLhT41qJwcuk5Qmfi2iikA/viewform?ts=5b8f9880&;edit_requested=true" target="_blank" rel="noopener">link</a> until all places are taken.

It is a unique occasion to find out more on these new initiatives dedicated to young people. Epta Makers Garden is a based on the theme of digital culture in lower secondary schools. Epta Digital Factory, on the other hand, is a tender open to young workers and students for projects intended for the digital world. The best ideas will be developed inside FabLab and presented at Maker Faire di Roma 2019, an event which celebrates the “DIY” culture in the technological sector.
