Mobilising researchers, academics & institutions to engineer a better world

EWB runs a variety of humanitarian engineering research initiatives that provide opportunities for community organisations, university students, academics and research institutions to participate in collaborative, innovative research that address poverty, inequality and sustainability.

Our research themes include agriculture, assitive technology, business development, education, energy, international development, professional practice, shelter and water, sanitation and hygiene.

We would love to receive Expressions of Interest from your organisation for new research topics in 2018 and beyond.
