SEE Faculty Bring Summit to Fort Collins

College of Business professors Paul Hudnut and Susan Golicic, and College of Engineering professor Bryan Willson, are helping Colorado State University organize and host the fourth annual International Development Design Summit, July 7-30, 2010, in conjunction with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Franklin W. Olin College, and design firm Cooper-Perkins.

Originally launched at MIT, the summit is an intense, three-week long, hands-on design experience that brings together people from all over the world and all walks of life to develop technologies and sustainable enterprises that improve the lives of people living in poverty. Designers, engineers, NGO workers, entrepreneurs, farmers, and nurses from approximately 20 countries will be participating.

This year’s summit focus has shifted from creation of technologies to their dissemination, and nine ventures are part of this year’s summit. The curriculum will explore a range of choices for ventures, from localized production to global supply chains, as these ventures determine the best way to increase their impact.
