Showcasing EU funds with MEUSAC in Gozo and Malta
|Email item||Print item||
MEUSAC has just launched an information measure – ‘Showcasing EU Funds’ – which is to be spread out in various localities in Malta and Gozo over the next six months. The 4 giant star-shaped structures have been constructed with the aim of displaying information relating to projects that have been awarded EU funding, some of which have also been successful as a result of MEUSAC’s assistance in the application stages.
The following is the schedule of the ‘star’ installations for the next six months:The stars are more than 5 metres long and 1 metre wide and a little less than 3 metres high and will, therefore, be highly visible to attract the attention of passers-by. The structure is also animated with a pulsing light at night to give the impression that the installation is glowing.
The structures themselves, which are of significant aesthetic value, will also be serving as interactive street furniture having incorporated benches as well as integrated Wi-Fi hotspots. The structures were designed by 3 University students – Nicolò Bencini, Francesca Camilleri and Jonathan Borg who won a national design competition organised earlier on this year by MEUSAC.
