Hosted by: Undergraduate Association Committees on Innovation and Technology & MIT Innovation Initiative

Join the Undergraduate Association Committees on Innovation and Technology in bringing in the new year with the BetterMIT Innovation Week & Makeathon.

Innovation is not simply an invention, but the process in which an idea is brought to the world. While the ideas and processes differ greatly between medical innovations and social change innovation, the goal is to show students these differences and how to make a difference where needed.

As an event by students and for students, the aim of BetterMIT Innovation Week is to empower you as you tackle community issues you’re passionate about by bringing in inspirational speakers to host discussions and workshops.
