Solutions Library Support
The objectives for the E4C Solutions Library (SL) Fellow are to assist in 1.) improving the SL process for product sourcing and defining the business case for partnerships, and 2.) defining strategy and testing for data migration for SL 3.0. The Engineering for Change (E4C) Solutions Library (SL) is a living global database of technology-based solutions (i.e., products ) that are designed to be accessible and suitable for underserved communities or individuals living in resource-constrained environments. This 'knowledge platform' was established in 2012 in response to the need for readily available and dependable information on existing technologies. The SL grew exponentially from 2016 to 2020 (and continues to grow) and E4C is currently developing a business case for its sustainability and continued growth. Additionally, E4C at large is launching a new website for the organization which includes an improved version of the SL platform. Both primary tasks to cover through this project will contribute to these purposes.
