MIT Tata Center for Technology + Design
The Tata Center for Technology and Design at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, was founded in 2012 with support from the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Allied Tata Trusts. The Center’s research and education mission is to develop solutions to challenges facing resource-constrained communities globally, with an initial focus on India. Center affiliated Faculty and graduate student Fellows engage in hands-on projects, with an approach that is rigorous and relevant to societal, economic, environmental and political factors. Solutions must create sustainable value and foster an entrepreneurial approach towards implementation in the public and private sectors. The Center is developing global leaders and is proud to partner with the sister Tata Centre, founded in 2014 at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
