damroo

The Trust had suggested the setting up of the Damroo Innovation Fund from sale of materials created during the project.
The new direction currently being explored is to understand how self-reflexive approaches can enrich design methods.
This includes field trips by students and faculty to
urban,  
rural, 
and tribal environments, 
in order to develop frameworks for education.
An experimental outreach centre for IIT Bombay is envisaged at Wighawali village near Indapur (Mangaon Taluka, Raigad district, Maharshtra)
and at Dighi-Nimeisapur (Kandarpur Tehsil, Cuttack district, Odisha).
