Through the years MoTiv has undertaken a series of activities in which we present work and content through a contemporary approach. Since the foundation of Motiv in 2002 we have worked with amateur (student) filmmakers and in the last couple of years with professional filmmakers to make visible to the public the deep personal commitment of the engineer. In special events, conferences and international trainings programmes we make it clear that we perceive technology not just as a matter of things, of construction and innovation, but as one of deep human longing for making a better world.
