InSTEDD's mission is to improve global health, safety and sustainable development through: - Building Capacity within communities to foster a local culture of innovation - Creating Collaboration Technologies for social good - Collaborating with End Users through a human-centered esign and development process - Ensuring Usefulness and Impact through research and evaluation We work to effectively bridge the gap between knowledge and action for improved collaboration. We work with governments, universities, corporations, international health organizations, humanitarian NGOs and local communities around the world. Together we work to identify requirements for enhanced information flow, better cross-sector collaboration and more effective collective action. Where solutions already exist, we integrate them. If another technology can be adapted to meet the needs, we re-purpose it. If a genuine gap is found, where no solution exists and no market pressures are driving the necessary innovation, we build it ourselves. Then we give it away, free and open source. We collaboratively test, train and deploy those solutions within the areas of the world that most need them. We continue to monitor these efforts in order to make sure we’ve aimed correctly and are able to make adjustments to ensure their effectiveness and utility.Something looks off?
