We are pursuing projects that may take months and years to come to fruition due to their complexity and the difficulties on the ground in Nepal. We believe this is the best way for MIT to make a meaningful contribution to the reconstruction of Nepal and the long-term well-being of its people. We also believe that work on these challenging issues serves MIT’s global educational mission by stimulating our richly creative faculty, researchers, and students to find new solutions to real-world problems. If you have ideas to contribute, please contact us.
