ART, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

The Institute for Research on Technology and Innovation – IPTI – is a non-profit art, science and technology institution that seeks to generate innovations capable of promoting human development through the creation of social technologies in the areas of basic education, entrepreneurial education and basic health.
IPTI began its first steps in October 2003 in the city of São Paulo. In 2009, the organization decides to transfer its headquarters to Santa Luzia do Itanhy, south of Sergipe, one of the municipalities with the lowest Human Development Indexes (HDI) in Brazil, to work with the local community to generate solutions that are effective in extremely vulnerable contexts and have potential to scale.
That is, everything happens from Santa Luzia do Itanhy. Once created, generated and systematized, the social technologies developed in that region are ready for re-application anywhere on the planet.
