WN797  LiveInLabs  0011 
Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has established liveinlabs at 100+ locations, mostly in rural areas spread across the length and breadth of India. LiveinLabs© is an opportunity for students to live in a village environment so they can study problems firsthand in water, health, education, etc. and work together to devise solutions. LiveInLabs will provide an experiential learning opportunity where each student can come and spend for 2 weeks to a semester in one of the live in labs based on the area. They will become part of the interdisciplinary team of students and faculty drawn from across the disciplines from all participating universities. The liveinlabs have varied focus areas such as energy, water, healthcare, education, waste management, ICT for billion, skill building etc.
