  • Livestream: India Innovation Speaker Series - Crowdsourcing a Pandemic Response: How (Extra) Ordinary Indians are Making a Difference


    The news cycle is filled with horror stories about the daily toll being extracted in India by the deadly second wave of the Covid pandemic. But an extraordinary thing is happening. A dedicated group of Indians, both from within India and across the world, are leading efforts to help India cope with this crisis.

    In this short webinar, Professor Partha Mohanram talks with three amazing people who are all making a difference in the fight against Covid. Their contributions are helping to locate on-the-ground resources such as ICU beds, drugs and plasma. They are securing critical donations through warp speed fundraising. And, they are developing an innovative oxygen exchange to ensure that demand and supply are efficiently matched. We hope that attendees are inspired to lend a hand and will learn how they can help India in its time of need.
