After the launch of the new platform, HTH together with the IIHA and I2M Factory is preparing some big surprises for the next future. Stay tuned to know more!
In the meantime, HTH and the IIHA welcome a new member to its family: Petros Ioannides! A former Columbia University student, Petros will support HTH communications and strategy implementation, and develop his own project to contribute to humanitarian innovation.
HTH continues its positive outreach trend: HTH attended the first ETC Connect Day in Washington, D.C., that brings together Emergency Telecommunications Cluster members, standing invitees, and existing and new private sector partners to tackle the cluster’s 2020 strategy, developing pilot projects, garnering further commitment and defining the way forward for technology in humanitarian response. In Istanbul, HTH and IIHA were selected to join the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) Innovation Marketplace, the aim of which is to showcase the practical applications of innovations, new or improved products, tools, services and processes that contribute to effective humanitarian action.
What about you: Do you know of any events you want HTH to be part of? Are you aware of anyone who does? Are you in New York, D.C., Boston or Istanbul and want to meet to explore ideas for cooperation? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The last few weeks were marked by the entry into force of the first strategic partnership with the Global Innovation Exchange, the presentation of a research on drones and mine action in a conference in occasion of the International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action, and the Keynote Talk introducing HTH and IIHA in a series organized by the World Food Programme (WFP) HQ in Rome. Both events, although very different in nature, announce exciting opportunities for development and represent just a first step in what will be a long, shared process. Also, HTH and its technical partner, I2M Factory – Digital Agency are proud to announce the opening of the Labs to the public for the first time since the launch of HTH. To test the platform, we will be accepting a limited amount of registered users willing to support us facilitating innovators worldwide in creating new humanitarian technology. With IIHA being the key partner in the initiative, IIHA Alumni and Faculty will be granted a red-tape access to the public beta testing. Don’t be shy, we’re opening on the 26th of April!
