As a result of our collective isolation, Tech4Impact is taking Global South Lunches Virtual! 
The aim of these lunches is to provide a platform to activate and catalyse the application of EPFL technologies for sustainable development in the Global South and further compliment Tech4Impact’s flagship Global South Initiative, Tech4Dev

The fourth Virtual Global South Lunch will take place on:
Tuesday 7 July 2020, 12:30 - 13:30

In this fourth edition we will be joined by Tech4Dev Grantee Véronique Michaud of the LPAC Lab. She will be presenting the 3D4Peace project which will be tested and scaled in Colombia in partnership with the OMNIS Institute. We will also be joined by Rob Salamanca-Giron Founder of Hacka-Vita.

Beatrice Scarioni, Head of Tech4Dev and Hilda Liswani, Business Development Manager at Tech4Dev, will be there to answer questions, provide contacts, link you with faculty and much more. (Agenda below)

We welcome members of the EPFL community and beyond who are running a project in a developing country, who are conducting field research/trial in the Global South or who are generally interested in the topic, to join us. The goal is to go beyond convening and provide a platform for exchange and action.

We look forward to seeing you there.
