EUREKA Treasures: making technology happen

EUREKA, the pan-European initiative for industrial R&D, launched in 2000 a travelling exhibition throughout Europe entitled EUREKA Treasures: making technology happen. It features project results ranging from a microchip for high performance computer games to intelligent cruise control in cars.

Visitors can interact with the exhibits and see concrete examples of how 12 of EUREKAs projects are impacting the lives of Europe's citizens. The projects featured in the exhibition have involved companies, both on large and small, from throughout Europe. The results of these projects show that cooperation, even within the same sector, can result in competitive products for the global market place. The Treasures exhibition is currently open to the public in Galway, Ireland, until 28 March 2004 in the Atlantaquaria building.
