Assistant Professor Prashant Rajan presented at MIT’s Innovation Lab Workshop on December 4, 2018. His presentation titled “Making when ends don’t meet: Why product innovation by households living on the margins matters”, focused on the need for corporations and governments to facilitate collaboration between users in low-income communities during innovation development. Prashant explained how collaborative innovation and entrepreneurship in resource-constrained communities could be supported by stronger vocational education infrastructure and rapid prototyping facilities. 

The workshop brings top-class researchers and scientists at public and private non-profit institutions in conversation with corporate executives on the topic of user-driven innovation.
