Meru Oaks is a network established to accelerate sustainable development by bridging the gap between technological innovation and developing economies through transfer of technology and resource management and allocation.
Each year there are thousands of groundbreaking research developments, inventions and innovations that make the world a better place. But having an idea — even a revolutionary one — isn’t always enough.
An idea or invention needs to be advanced and translated into an economical and scalable or replicable good or service that creates value for users— and that is where technology transfer fits in.
Technology transfer, or transfer of technology (TOT), is the process of commercializing and disseminating valuable technology, research, knowledge and skills.
Meru Oaks makes education, scientific and technological developments accessible to demographics that need them the most by implementing projects in key industries to create sustainable transformation and advancement on a large scale.
The concept of sustainable development addresses the socio-economic development of every human being. Successful long-term sustainability considers the role of all forms of resources and capital—natural, technological, financial, biological, social and cultural—and the complex ways in which they all interact.
It is difficult to deny the overall impact of industrial development on the global environment. From the pollution, climate change, depletion of mineral and organic resources, ecological devastation, poverty and starvation and global inequity – the direct and indirect effects of industrial activity over time have been intensely detrimental.
While sustainable technologies and production processes are not necessarily a magic bullet, the focus on minimizing the damage and creating sustainable production and supply systems makes a real difference.
Ultimately, the benefits of sustainability go beyond its positive impact on our environment. Sustainable production and supply are a lasting resource that nurtures infinite innovation in all industries.
It’s amazing what a small space with limited lighting can be turned into if a professional designer gets their hands on it!
