India Engineering Field Testing Platform
We're pleased to spotlight our talented colleagues in India. The India Engineering Field Testing (IEFT) platform is a team of engineers in Coimbatore, India, who install and test prototype sanitation technologies. Led by the Center's Sonia Grego, the team is part of a large network of public and private entities advancing sanitation solutions. They assist technology developers by providing opportunities for building-scale technologies to be used in real-world scenarios. This real-world testing provides developers with critical feedback that they can incorporate into future iterations of a technology - a process that leads to more efficient and ultimately better product design. The IEFT team is a model for how sanitation technologies can be vetted and optimized through standardized procedures in the field. You can learn more about the team and the platform here and here.
