The MIT India Initiative is a not-for-profit effort of students and alumni from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to delve into pressing problems in novel, challenging contexts, and tackle these with technology and design. This is a first of its kind workshop where mentors from multiple departments of MIT and Harvard will work with talented participants chosen from all across India to design solutions to some of today's most pressing challenges.
The workshop will be held in Mumbai, India facilitating participants to work on solutions that cut across boundaries of cultures, disciplines, and institutions. MIT and Harvard mentors (with guidance from workshop leadership) will work in teams on problems that relate to their expertise for a week with Indian students, direct them to potential solutions, and run sessions that challenge workshop students to think outside the box.
This is the first version of MIT India Initiative Workshop series assimilating the drive of multiple departments from MIT and Harvard to address local challenges of India. This initiative has been greatly inspired from several other initiatives of the past. MIT India Initiative acknowledges the collective effort of MIT, and is grateful for the past work done by MIT alumni and other MIT wide groups including MIT Tata Center for Technology and Design, MIT Media Lab India Initiative, MIT Connected Learning Initiative, MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives, MIT D-Lab India, and MIT J-Pal South Asia group.
