Celebrating ten years of innovation with Maker Faire Rome
From 7 to 9 October 2022, “Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition” is back at the Gazometro Ostiense to celebrate its 10 years of innovation
The unmissable event that is “Maker Faire Rome 2022 – The European Edition” will be celebrating its ten-year committment to fostering innovation and making it accessible to everyone.
The event – promoted by the Rome Chamber of Commerce and organised by its special company Innova Camera – will be held from 7 to 9 October at Gazometro Ostiense (although online sessions are also scheduled) and will address all the key components of innovation: from digital manufacturing to the Internet of Things, from robotics to artificial intelligence, from circular economy to agritech, including biohacking, data science and aerospace.
Its overriding aims are to promote the development of an innovation culture among entrepreneurs and to familiarise young people with the work scenarios of tomorrow.
Ten years of innovation
The 2022 edition is the tenth of an event that has grown and evolved over time, while always remaining a point of reference for all those who want to change the world, for the better, with their own vision.
Ten years of innovation and ideas have been converted into real projects and inventions that have improved and revolutionised entire sectors of our society, making what seemed unattainable a few years ago possible.
Ten editions of MFR, both in-person and online, have brought together companies, universities, schools, research centres, people, thoughts, opinions, knowledge and skills from all over the world, creating increasingly strong and permanent links thanks to a universal language: that of innovation.
For the occasion, #MFR2022 will be a true “special edition” preceded and followed by a series of events and initiatives, including digital ones, that do not end with the “classic” three days of the event.
Calls are all open!
All Maker Faire Rome calls are now open; with a deadline of 26 June 2022. Details are as follows.
Call for Makers 2022
“Call for Makers 2022” aims to promote innovation through the diffusion of digital culture and the development of individual and collective entrepreneurship, rewarding the projects that are deemed most worthy.
By taking part in the call, you will have the opportunity to submit your idea to the curators, and those selected will be able to use, free of charge, a space to display their innovative project or a slot in the digital section to be the focus of a discussion or a speech during Maker Faire Rome 2022.

Call for Schools 2022
Since its first edition in 2013, Maker Faire Rome has always given space to the creativity of young people – our country’s real and valuable resource. It seeks to promote the constant commitment and dedication of all the teachers who contribute every day to making all their students’ talents and qualities shine through innovative educational initiatives, projects and programmes.
The Call for Schools, created in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Education, is reserved for national upper secondary schools in European Union countries (students aged 14–18).
A jury of experts will select the most interesting and innovative projects created at school, and the selected schools will be able to participate in MFR2022 and have a free exhibition space.
