Have you ever wondered how new ideas can help people in the developing world? Are you interested in what Cambridge can do to help? If so, then our new Development i-Teams programme is for you!

The Centre for Global Equality (formerly the Humanitarian Centre) and i-Teams are running the “Development i-Teams” programme for the second time this term. Taking real Cambridge innovations, the i-Teams will look into the realities of taking these to the developing world in a sustainable way that will improve people’s lives.

Projects this term include low-cost lighting, biogas, and water testing.

Development i-Teams is open to all students (undergraduates and post-graduates), post-docs and staff from Cambridge, Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and the University of East Anglia (UEA), as well as all members of the Centre for Global Equality – anyone with an interest in how technology can make the world a better place for the world’s poorest.

The course runs on Thursday evenings from October 15th through to November 26th, and there will be approximately 4 hours of individual work needed each week, mostly involving gathering real-world feedback from experts in international development.
