GHD Lab 2011 – Host Application

by admin on October 19, 2010

Projects will run from early February to late April 2011, with student collaboration beginning in late 2010 or early 2011.

Thank you for your interest in GHD Lab. The application questionnaire will help us understand your needs and assess if your project is a good fit. The application is divided into an initial check and two parts: Part One is about the project and your organization, and Part Two, which comes later, addresses resources and logistics for the project. To complete the questionnaire you’ll need to have a project in mind, even if tentative. We understand that the project itself is likely to evolve.

To start, please download and review the Note to prospective host.  Then download and answer the Initial check and Part One questionnaire. If your project looks to be a good fit for our class, we will contact you with a request to submit Part Two.

Key milestones for this year’s projects are:

  • Initial check and Part One due by November 10, 2010. The earlier we get these, the better.
  • We’ll give you some quick feedback, and for projects that will fit well, Part Two is due no later than December 1, 2010.
  • Students will be matched with projects by December 10, 2010.
  • Matched projects will be taken up in our GHD Lab course which runs at MIT from February-April, 2011 (but we ask student teams to make initial contact with hosts in December or January so they can get right to work in February).
  • The two-week onsite intensive work takes place when the MIT students come to your organization, around March 12-26, 2011.
