“Without you realising, science is all around you. From the moment you get up in the morning until you go to bed, European research is part of your everyday life. The EU runs the biggest research and innovation programme in the world: Horizon 2020”.
INCEPTION participated in the stand EU Science around the clock!, dedicated in particular to the "Research and Innovation" projects, during the Open Day of the European Institutions on 6 May 2017. Approximately 12,000 visitors came to the Open Day, and the exhibition of some of the main outcomes from INCEPTION contributed to show how important research and innovation are for the European economy and quality of life.
Through a playful and interactive walk by 30 stands, this 25th edition of the Open Day in the Berlaymont presented the main policies of the EU, highlighting the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties, the 5 scenario's on the future of Europe, the European Solidarity Corps and the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus+.
INCEPTION presented some of the preliminary outcomes on Virtual Reality of heritage as tools for the practical application of multi-informative 3D models.
The application of different digital acquisition systems for the development of a three-dimensional modelling dedicated to making digital models used by different categories of users belonging to different disciplines is one of the main objectives of the project in terms of "inclusive cultural heritage".
The Virtual Tours presented to ''Open Doors Day" by means of Headsets allowed visitors to explore one of the INCEPTION Demonstration Cases, the Istituto degli Innocenti in Florence by Brunelleschi, and other historical environments. Another Virtual Tour showed the building of the Department of Architecture of the University of Ferrara, a fifteenth-century building in the historic centre of Ferrara. 
Other three-dimensional models such as the Laurentian Library by Michelangelo in Florence and the archaeological site of Geguti Palace near Kutaisi, Georgia, were presented as a result of the activity of advanced 3D integrated survey.
