NextLab projects selected to exhibit at Cooper-Hewitt Museum’s Design Triennial


The Next Billion Network, selected for the Cooper-Hewitt’s Design Triennial exhibition, features NextLab projects created in partnership with the MIT Media Lab. NextLab founder and instructor Jhonatan Rotberg is currently a lecturer in MIT Engineering Systems Division and now presides over NextLab 2.0, the next generation of this program, in partnership with Dr. Edgar Blanco, executive director of the MIT Center for Latin American Logistics Innovation. Nextlab 2.0 is being hosted at the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics.
 
“All of us at the MIT NextLab program feel privileged to have three of our spinoffs selected to exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution’s Design Triennial,” Rotberg said. “We see this is an honor to the wider MIT community, as the Next Billion Network, Mocamobile.org, and Interactive Alerts for Child Pneumonia, are all quintessential MIT offspring: open, collaborative initiatives that direct our students’ unique zeal for innovation toward addressing challenges of global significance.”
