ONE GOOD READ: New research collaboration aims to tackle global societal challenges through design
MIT News: Leaders from the MIT School of Architecture and Planning, the MIT Morningside Academy for Design and the Hasso Plattner Institute announced the Hasso Plattner Institute-MIT Research Program on Designing for Sustainability. This research collaboration, funded by the Hasso Plattner Foundation, is an eight-year program to drive joint scientific research at both institutes in sustainable design, innovation and digital technologies, as well as in translating research results into practice. Through this engagement, MIT and HPI aim to tackle global challenges as expressed in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The program will connect faculty and students from both institutions, with the intention of having the most significant possible societal impact. The MIT Morningside Academy for Design, a new institute-wide hub for cross-disciplinary education, research and innovation, will administer the collaboration and ensure the program’s reach across MIT.
