The project

Technical Solidarity collaborates with the GCSP (Grand Challenges Scholar Program), an inter-university program on the Great Challenges of Research and Development, of 90 universities, promoted by President Obama and active all over the world, to carry out projects in support of populations in serious difficulty. Our activity consists, in particular, in the design of technologically and economically sustainable photovoltaic power systems for pumping and desalination of drinking water and for irrigating fields.

Field Study Abroad

Since 2014 Technical Solidarity organizes Field Study Abroad, training experiences in Latin America and Africa both in rural areas and at institutional locations. During these school camps, university students study and apply sustainable technologies directly in the field, tackling their engineering, economic and social aspects. Find out more

Modernization of developing rural communities

Reduction of damage caused by wars, the autonomy of people with disabilities

We collaborate with many companies around the world on various projects:

  • Organization of the Field Study Abroad
  • Humanitarian demining laboratory in Cisterna di Latina
  • Technologies supporting the autonomy of the Saharawi population
  • OSEC (On-Site Electrolytic Chlorination), for the production of chlorine from salt water and renewable energy sources, aimed at drinking water
  • Solar cookers in Central Africa
  • Rural electrification in remote countries through renewable energy sources (hydroelectric, biomass, solar energy …)
  • Installation of systems in emergency situations (solar thermal and OSEC after the L’Aquila earthquake)

All the projects have as their foundation to respond to the needs of local populations, with an approach to adapt technologies to the needs, capabilities and will of the communities that will benefit from them in the long term. Go to projects
