The HumanTech Innovation Lab (HTiL) is a digital humanitarian initiative focused on displaced persons and issues surrounding the displaced, proactively and collaboratively at the intersect between humanitarianism and technology.
Our overarching aim is to be part of delivering a more sustainably secure and prosperous world.
Our specific goal is to help facilitate pragmatic direct communication between displaced people, government policy makers, potential host communities and humanitarian initiatives.
Our process is to do this through effective use of tech driven big data information management developed with and for refugee communities and refugee support providing organisations.
The HumanTech Innovation Lab process is collaborative. Harnessing the power of the vast humanitarian network already engaged + the power of big data information management, to facilitate pragmatic, proactive support and solutions to the ongoing issues surrounding displaced persons, migration and integration.
- To address migration and integration, from the particular to the global.
- Coordination and distribution of information and near real-time data visualisations pertinent to refugee, migration and integration issues towards sustainable solutions to identity, security, mobility and global prosperity.
- Collaboration across disciplines, sectors and borders, with and for the displaced as fellow catalysts for change; in service to government policy makers who are committed to the UNHCR Sustainable Development Goals, and humanitarian initiatives of every size.
- Creation and promotion of the use of MyInform Chat & MyInform Hub everywhere that issues of migration and integration exist.
- To contribute both in our process and in the outcomes we facilitate to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
- Operationally aware and respecting the principles of the Charter of the United Nations
- HTiL seeks ultimately to achieve its own obsolescence by having optimised the collaboration between all networking partners concerned with displacement, refugee issues, asylum, migration and integration.
