Live-in-Labs® is a multidisciplinary experiential learning program that breaks classroom and lab barriers by applying learned theory in real-world settings. This credit-based academic program draws on principles of lean research for the development and deployment of sustainable solutions for current challenges faced by rural communities in India. By directly living in rural communities (labs) and co-designing sustainable solutions program participants gain first-hand knowledge along with the know-how of identifying and assessing community needs. Subsequently viable solutions are developed and implemented through various participatory methods.
With over 160 projects in 22 states across India, Live-in-Labs® participants have touched the lives of approximately 600,000 rural residents during the past several years. With participation from over 30 institutions around the world and nearly 50 departments, schools, and centers at Amrita, students and faculty have clocked in a monumental 200,200 + hours in the field working towards sustainable development in rural communities.
