REDX is a platform that brings together technical experts, innovators, researching institutions, implementation partners and corporate partners that will allow us to solve the most pressing challenges within our communities. These are highly collaborative efforts, involving researchers from multiple disciplines such as public health and safety, biology, computer science, statistics, mathematics, fabrication, hardware and software simulation and modeling.
REDX labs and clubs serve as gateways to the energy and creativity of innovators who are creating solutions to satisfy significant social needs in their locations, and perhaps elsewhere as well. The next generation of innovators is being cultivated, and the seeds of economic development and personal empowerment have being planted – through the innovators themselves, their solutions, and the people they touch. From an Open Systems Interconnection model perspective, we are facilitating the connection between the data and physical layers, thus enabling interoperability, communication and functionality.
In collaboration with experts from several research centers at the MIT Media Lab, bright young innovators from all regions around the world have the opportunity to work closely with corporate executives, academics from institutions of higher learning, government officials and experienced mentors to imagine and develop solutions to solve major problems affecting citizens in resource-constrained areas and situations.
There are REDX Labs and Clubs on almost every continent around the world.
