Development of Joint Villanova/UNI Courses for Developing Sustainable Technologies for Rural Nicaraguans

Villanova University, 2012 - $31,120

This grant will support a new set of courses offered jointly by Villanova and Universidad Nicaragua de Ingenieria (UNI) to create teams of students focused on the development of technologies and businesses that improve the lives of rural Nicaraguans. Villanova and UNI students will work collaboratively on the design of innovative technologies and development of conceptual business models. The result will be prototypes that could be used as the basis for E-Team Program applications and for commercialization through business incubators at both Villanova and UNI.
