Progetto TALKING HANDS, finalist for Make to Care 2016 edition and winner of ROME Prize 2016 edition


MAKEtoCARE is also a contest, promoted for the first time in 2016. The award stems from the desire to bring out and facilitate the implementation, along with the dissemination, of innovative and useful solutions to meet the real needs of people who have any form of disability, it being understood as any sharp decrease in the quality of life due to diseases and/or traumatic events.

Participation in the contest is free and, besides being expressly for the Maker community, is open to everyone (Italian or foreign individuals, companies, organisations, associations, foundations, and/or other legal entities, residing or established in Italy or in any other country of the European Union) able to get hold of a tangible need, by orienting their ingenuity and proposing an innovative solution.
