The Shah Family Global Innovation Lab helps to translate Purdue’s engineering innovations to sustainable global development impact for the poorest or vulnerable populations in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). It provides connectivity to key stakeholders and potential donors in international development, and seed funding for designing and testing innovative yet appropriate solutions for communities in LMICs. The Lab provides a fertile ground for interdisciplinary student and faculty teams to work on solving roadblock challenges in the following core areas:
