APIIT partners with Citra Social Innovation Lab to design citizen-centric solutions for pressing socio-economic problems

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Sri Lanka’s Citra Social Innovation Lab introduced the students of APIIT to the fundamentals of Human-Centred Design and its application in designing innovative, citizen-centric, and sustainable solutions to pressing socio-economic problems. Students were equipped not only with an understanding of what Human-Centred Design is, but were also provided with a set of tools that can be applied to a vast number of situations to better understand a problem and design a solution to address it.
