Theme for 2021
“Reverse Innovation for Humanitarian Technology Solutions using STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, and Management.”

What and why reverse innovation?

Reverse innovation or trickle-up innovation is innovation designed and implemented first for the developing world, before being adopted by the industrialized world. Developing countries have situations that make such innovations possible, and these resource constraint driven solutions, tend to find potential applications in industrialized countries for their novelty, price competitiveness and user driven design.

IEEE R10 HTC 2021 focuses on capturing and addressing the latent and unmet needs of the marginalised societies through systems thinking, technology adoption, process improvement, steps for mass reach and cost-effectiveness. Reverse innovation can provide significant opportunities to solve the world’s toughest unmet needs by proposing indigenous solutions through the use of STEM.

There will be multiple trajectories under which events will be organized:

Inspire: This trajectory provides opportunities to energize and empower communities by the sharing of experiences and celebrating solutions in the SDG space. It includes many tracks where authors present their projects, research to the audience.

Advance: Upskilling and reskilling is the mantra for the future. This trajectory includes a series of workshops to support students and professionals with technical expertise. The workshops help them become better Engineers, Developers, Scientists, and Advocates/ Evangelists for humanitarian causes ensuring IEEE’s motto ‘Technology for Humanity’.

Engage: This trajectory attempts to redefine the new normal, enable a cross-pollination of ideas and support participants and experts have discussions about the many SDG challenges and identify potential opportunities for collaboration and innovation.
