Developing innovative solutions to community problems

UNESCO-UNEVOC Promising Practice

Access to technical and higher education along with skills development programmes have become important tools to tackle poverty in Brazil. By recognizing that innovation takes place at the forefront of learning, PICG Innovation Hub enables its students to develop creative practical solutions utilizing science and technology. Student-led projects range from partnerships with low income communities to the development of innovation projects with engineering companies. The technology that students develop with private sector companies allows the application of low-cost solutions that benefit rural communities.
