What is Heroes?

HEROES is the first Euro-Mediterranean Co-innovation Festivalthat involves the global enterprise players, business angels, investors, intellectuals, researchers, policy makers and the best start ups of the Euro-Mediterranean basin.

The best event on innovation and future that you cannot miss, and which in the last edition saw more than 150 guests speaking and performing on our sea view stages.

Check out the program, the speakers, the Heroes Award and many networking opportunities to meet tomorrow's talents.


The main topics of this edition

This year our heroes will come together to imagine and build a new technological humanism where Big data, AI, Cybersecurity and Biotech can coexist with culture, territory and people. Maratea, like all unexplored territories, can represent the ideal laboratory for finding a better future based on balance between nature and technique, innovation and tradition, design and vision.
