The 2015 Fritz Schumacher Award at the IMechE
Practical Action is delighted to be teaming up with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) in 2015 to sponsor an award at the IMechE’s annual dinner in the autumn.
The Fritz Schumacher award recognises individuals for their outstanding contribution to alleviating poverty in the developing world through innovative, simple and sustainable engineering and technology solutions.
The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate how engineering can be used as a force for social good, improving the quality of life in the developing world through creating a new technology or through innovative research to enable the design of a new product to alleviate poverty.
