Moreover, she presented the planned project solutions, with special focus on the two technologies developed, including the Plug&Play Envelope System and the flexible heating solution.

The event included different speeches of Péter Kőrös, vice mayor of the Municipality of Budapest XVIII district of Budapest; Szilvia Kékesi, Director of BP18 Centralised Network of Kindergartens and Dóra Herpainé Ábrányi, Director of Zöld Liget Kindergarten.
