The stand out activities from this year's program include a workshop on how to build nanosatelites; The Glass Room Experience, an installation that shows the dark side of the technology we use day to day; as well as an opportunity to meet the creators investigating how art can exist in space, creating instruments designed to be played in zero gravity.

Vaonis will be attending specifically the Startup Garden area, dedicated to the entrepreneurial ecosystem, the chosen way, more and more, to channel innovation for large companies as well as for creatives, technologists and entrepreneurs. The Startup Garden will promote more than 25 selected startups presenting their new technology to change the future.
