The 3D4D Challenge: 3D printing technologies to deliver social benefits in the developing world

Posted by in What's Hot

The 3D4D Challenge is looking for people to use 3D printing to deliver social benefits to the developing world.  Teams compete for $100,000 in funding to make their ideas for real.

The challenge is being run by techfortrade / Trade4all Limited, a UK charity, launched with privately raised seed funding in early 2011 with a mission to alleviate poverty through technology enabled trade. Their aim is to act as a catalyst for new ideas, working with innovative projects that have the potential to scale and replicate.
