Economic growth and wellbeing are increasingly driven by technological advances–from big-data, mobile computing and automation, to digital connectivity and the creation of new infrastructure. These innovations are transforming access to information, labor markets, human capital development, and productivity across the world, particularly in low-income countries. CEGA works across disciplines and sectors to design, evaluate, and support potential high-impact technologies that empower the poor and grow economies. Research competitions fund proposals in every stage of the innovation life cycle, resulting in a portfolio of projects at the cutting edge of energy infrastructure, the internet of things, microscopy, artificial intelligence and more.
The Development Impact Lab (DIL), launched in 2012 with the support of USAID, supports the basic scientific research, prototyping, scaling, and rigorous impact evaluation for technologies for development. DIL established the new field of Development Engineering, integrating insights from development economics to bolster the impact of advanced technological innovations being deployed in developing countries and has supported more than 100 research projects in more than 35 countries....
