The Romanian Pavilion is a generator of ideas, bringing to the fore the creation journey of innovations or inventions born only as a result of interdisciplinary collaboration. Ideas and objects become the ingredients of a dialogue about the future in which the visitor is welcomed to participate by exploring the space of the pavilion.
The visitor interactively explores 4 research areas: Romanian Technical Innovations and Inventions, 100 lateral pedagogies, the Genetic Seed Bank and the Co-Future Installation as an activator of ideas, all representing a way of education through research, innovation, and social activation, seen as new solutions to respond to a people- and context-centered future.

While today more than a billion people do not have access to drinking water, about 70 years ago a Romanian inventor, Henri Coanda, created a desalination plant meant to turn seawater into drinking water only using solar energy: in 12 hours,1600 liters of drinking water were processed by means of an 8 sqm installation exposed to the sun. Unfortunately, the innovation stagnated in the functional prototype phase, being blocked for bureaucratic reasons.

Cropping activities can be creatively adapted to experimental contemporary living: we produce housing, we also produce food. If the land still allows crops to grow in the countryside, how can we produce healthy food in an extremely dense urban environment? There are crops that can be grown in polluted environments, improving the place.
