Live-in-LabsTM is a multidisciplinary, theory-into-practice program that facilitates research, development, and deployment of sustainable solutions for current challenges faced by rural communities in India. The program provides international students and researchers an experiential learning opportunity in which they can directly interact, observe, and study, while living in rural communities to gain a better understanding of problems in the areas of health and livelihood, education and technology, environment and farming, energy, and infrastructure and basic facilities. The program supports and facilitates students from multiple disciplines to first, delineate projects that address problems, and subsequently, to implement, test, and eventually demonstrate innovative, affordable, and comprehensive solutions.

Amrita has established the Live-in-LabsTM program in several states across India. International students, both undergraduates and graduates, can spend two weeks to a semester (4-6 months) as a member of an interdisciplinary team of students and faculty at one of the program sites. Furthermore, each team will be guided by 2-3 faculty members drawn from various disciplines from participating universities. The University of California, San Diego (USA), was the first institution to sign on as an international partner for the Live-in-LabsTM program.
