In this interactive project fair, EU-funded projects will present their activities and results and demonstrate in concrete terms how Europe is helping to shape the everyday lives in the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-South Tyrol (Italy).

At this event, visitors to the 44 stands can experience natural phenomena through 3D glasses, get to know gluten-free cereals or test innovative safety devices on a climbing wall and much more. In several short lectures and discussion rounds, they will learn interesting facts about topics such as biogas plants, research on mummies and other ancient finds or funding opportunities of the European Social Fund. Every visitor can express his or her wishes for Europe in a creative exhibition. A theatre performance of the “Teatro La Ribalta” will take place on 24 September at 7 pm. The project fair ends on 25 September at 1 pm.
