Exhibition area

A Selection of EU CAPS projects and projects developed in Rome will be showcasing their demonstrations, based on success stories and results.

The exhibition area will be located in the Piccola Promoteca Hall, beside the Plenary Room.



MAZI project will deploy a MAZI Zone (a local WiFi network) in the room where we will provide local services and applications for enabling the audience to collaboratively take notes, share files with others, share photos and ideas in the local digital Guestbook, organize a poll and others. The audience will have the opportunity to see the hardware that is used for the MAZI toolkit and understand how they can deploy their own MAZI Zone. The visitors will be able to login to the MAZI Zone with their smartphones/laptops/tablets and interact with the MAZI Portal. They will be able to observe all the different functionalities of the toolkit and configure them accordingly. Moreover they will be able to see the latest additions in the MAZI Portal like the monitoring framework or the Wireless Mesh functionality and have an idea of what can be achieved locally when they deploy their own MAZI Zones. Finally, the latest version of the tookit guidelines will be provided for the management and operation of the toolkit.




ASSET project will invite the participants to experiment the ASSET smartphone application. ASSET will set up a demo- supermarket (via some product names) and set up the virtual infrastructure, as if all the products were there.  The users will be able to download the app and test it. Then users can go through the demo-supermarket, choose the products of their interest and access single items’ ratings.




PIE NEWS/Commonfare project will showcase the latest Commonfare’s platform’s components. Among them, the “information hub”, featuring information about welfare measures in the three pilot countries, and the “storytelling hub”, featuring the stories written by the users active on the platform and stories about bottom-up welfare practices. They will show the tools available to write stories (e.g. the storybuilder) as well as other functionalities currently under design and implementation.




The OpenMaker Digital Social Platform (OM-DSP) provides users with a digital environment to stay engaged (online), thereby supporting participants to better develop their social capital and increase their social impact in terms of innovation, knowledge transfer, and business success. The OM-DSP builds on members’ concrete needs and values and bring them together in a community-building process, multiplying the innovation potential of each accelerator programme thanks to a novel approach to social platforms based on notions of shared values and trust-based networks.

The audience can sign up on the spot during the fair and see how he/she fits into the ‘making revolution’ through the platform. For instance, a user that is not familiar with the Maker Movement can learn about how “everybody is a maker” thanks to some of the DIY activities promoted on the platform, while professional makers and manufactures can take an interest in the events, contacts and ‘innovation challenges’ available through the platform and learn from the OpenMaker community.




Open4Citizens project will present the European Network of Open Data Labs initiative and invite perspectives to join it and develop projects, initiatives and publications to promote it. Open4Citizens will present a European map of OpenDataLabs the Citizen Data Toolkit, a collection of tools created and tested during the project’s lifetime. It consists of a set of tools supporting the novice designer through a creative process, while inviting experimentation and use of open data. Concretely the toolkit includes a deck of Inspiration Cards and templates for defining innovation questions based on data; a series of data cards and small booklets to assist those who are eager to improve their skills related to innovation based on data.




Roma Makers is the biggest Italian makers’ community. Thanks to the Roma FabLab it offers the city a stable location where to promote digital social innovation, based on Open Source and Sharing Economy paradigms. Through events and conferences it promotes the Italian FabLabs’ networking and knowledge sharing.




Flyfish.zone: A social map where you can search, offer and share economic and social value Flyfish is a social network of urban sharing economy, born to promote the sharing of activities, services and skills between “communities” living in the same city or neighborhood. From language lessons to small home maintenance works, from babysitting to helping the alone elderly, Flyfish joins together the request and the supply. Flyfish also supports the local economy and small businesses that encounter increasing difficulties in a globalized economy. Our team, supported by the strategic model Coach-Ing (http://www.coach-ing.it/) that puts in a system, through relational and technical skills, Education, Training, Engagement, has increasingly become a container of specific skills able to intervene in a world in continuous and fast evolution.



The ReTer association has been working in the Roman territory for over three years as an independent research laboratory with a strong interest in the promotion of ‘neogeography’ and the practices related to the participatory geospatial Web. ReTer aims at triggering and accompanying thematic social mapping initiatives that local organisations and communities are interested in conducting according to their activities and projects. Constituting open operative units (that are composed of the promoters but not limited to them), ReTer provides them with open tools, operational standards and shared methodologies to carry out the mappings, with the aim of connecting in the future both at the operational and informative level these units in the shared infrastructure.
