During the Internet Freedom Festival, which will take place in Valencia, Spain, from the 1st to the 6th March 2016, eQualit.ie will host a tool showcase and award ceremony on Thursday 3rd March, starting from 7 pm.
During the showcase, 15 tools will be introduced with a short presentation to the entire room and then be assigned to their own tables for a continuing discussion with the audience, who will then vote their favourite projects for three different categories – “You did whaaaat?”, “Wish I’d thought of that!”, and “You get a biscuit”.
