ROW is a global humanitarian innovation consortium, whose mission is to employ​ ​advance​​d​ ​technology to improve human rights fulfillment of both refugees and host communities in conflic​t-affected areas​ - technology such as 3D printing, robotics, the internet of things, brain-computer interface and virtual/augmented reality. We seek to save lives, reduce trauma and improve basic needs provision while driving long-term economic development, productivity growth, venture creation and employment generation. Moreover, we​ ​aim​ ​to reduce the costs of humanitarian relief by providing affected communities with access to advanced manufacturing tools, training, raw materials and access to international experts, especially global open-source hardware​ ​and​ ​software communities. In brief, we are building a network of makerspaces / innovation centers in conflict-affected areas that provide training to displaced persons and host communities, while building solutions to the hardest problems facing victims of conflict Ours is a journey of moonshot humanitarian innovation, with and for the most violent and unstable areas of the planet.
