Dr Jeremy Smith is a Reimagine Fellow, and his project focuses on E+i: engineering positive impact.
The E+i Hub will provide a visible outward facing portal to foster collaborations across the ANU campus and with external groups for education, research and outreach. These collaborations provide expertise to partnerships across health, education, economic participation and social inclusion. The Hub will utilise existing CECS expertise, supplemented by strategic interventions and targeted funding from research, impact, and philanthropic sources.
This Hub will bring together input from across the College to explore new approaches to harnessing the potential of engineering and technology to contribute to long-lasting positive human impact. It will bring new and existing expertise in CECS to bear on challenges of disadvantage, marginalisation, and vulnerability, to improve quality of life and human well-being in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
