Engineering Reverse Innovations:
Using Emerging Markets’ Constraints to Drive the Creation of High-Performance, Low-Cost, Global Technologies
*What is different about designing technologies for developing and emerging markets?
*What is the value added of the technical community in international development?
*Can you make money and create a social impact concurrently in poor countries?
Amos G. Winter is an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at MIT and the director of the Global Engineering and Research Lab. Join us as he shares his work in engineering science, where his lab is leveraging science and research to solve applied problems, and how engineering reverse innovations led to disruptive insights in Prof. Winter’s research on drip irrigation and water purification.
