The Multidimensional Technological Innovations for Water-Linked Health and Wellness Workshop, a part of the Sustainable Solution With Appropriate Technological Development and Innovation (SWADIN) Initiative, was co-organized by Purdue University, USA, and the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India. The workshop was held at the campus of the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur from March 3–6, 2013.
The papers included in this volume outline the workshop’s vision to create technological innovation in detecting, preventing, and managing water-linked health and wellness issues that affect people’s lives via prioritized research, education, innovation, and entrepreneurial activities. The targeted seed regions were two eastern states in India—Orissa and West Bengal. In addition to the multidisciplinary faculty members and students from IIT Kharagpur and Purdue, other collaborating partners or contributors to the proceedings included representatives from UNICEF India, a medical professional, a representative from a non-governmental organization (Water Initiative Orissa), and an irrigation engineer.
