It is a “work in progress”, as is fitting for those involved in innovation, the first edition of the International Inventors Exhibition, whose inauguration is scheduled for next Thursday, October 13.
Fast-paced, all organizational pieces are finding their place, with inventors coming also from foreign countries such as Japan and Nigeria, but even from Syria (war situation permitting…). Great attention will be dedicated to the relationship between the city of the future and the environment, talking about urban agriculture and smart cities, but also introducing environmentally friendly construction solutions. Another very interesting trend will be that of aids for disabled people: tools to facilitate the existential autonomy of blind people or people with hearing impairment will be on display, and it will be possible to experience the boat for sailors with walking difficulties.
