Case Study, Sustainability, Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

We continue to develop and support programmes that assist displaced people. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) ReAct programme was launched in 2017 to provide educational and professional opportunities for displaced people around the world.

The programme combines the university’s educational strengths with networking and internship opportunities.

MIT ReAct also incorporates workshops in innovation, entrepreneurship and soft skills, generating an individualised, contextualised, and blended learning experience.

In 2018, we hosted five MIT ReAct interns for one year and two have become permanent employees. We plan to build on this success and expand our support by hosting ten interns in 2019.
