Having spent 11 years as an educator, Elton moved on to become an integral part of the team that implemented the first interactive Science and Technology Centre in Malta, ESPLORA. He then formed part of the establishment’s management, leading the education team during its first years of operation with the aim of bringing science closer to the general public. Elton then joined INDIS Malta, the entity responsible for the management of industrial estates. While his main focus was on the entity’s business development, he was also the project leader for the ERDF-funded regeneration of the Ta’ Qali Artisan Village. Upon completion of the project, Mr Micallef was appointed to manage the Malta Crafts Foundation in its efforts to revive the artisan sector in Malta.
