THE LEMELSON FOUNDATION Scholarship
The mission of The Lemelson Foundation is to support and inspire invention and innovation that improves people’s lives. The Foundation works internationally through its Invention for Sustainable Development Program that aims to foster human creativity and invention to meet basic human needs and to build sustainable livelihoods for the world’s poorest citizens.
To accomplish its international goals, one of the Foundation’s strategic programs is the Recognition and Mentoring Program (RAMP).
The Lemelson Foundation is supporting the development of Recognition and Mentoring Programs in Indonesia, India and Peru. In Indonesia the RAMP is implemented by two partner organizations:
a new foundation called Yayasan Inovasi Teknologi (YIT) and Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB).
These two organizations work together to provide support to individuals and/or teams of student and grassroots inventors, helping them to commercialize inventions or products that contribute to sustainable development and poverty alleviation in Indonesia. RAMP Indonesia supports innovations in sectors such as water, energy, health, agriculture, or biodiversity.In support of this Program, the Lemelson Foundation, based in Portland Oregon USA, is searching for a consultant based in Indonesia to serve as a liaison for the Lemelson Foundation.
