Putnam Associates has joined the MIT SOLVE Network as part of the expansion of our community engagement and charitable giving programs. Launched by MIT in 2015, The mission of SOLVE is to help solve the world’s most pressing challenges through open innovation and partnership.
As SOLVE members, Putnam Partners and teams will support the development of target initiatives and contribute to framing the next generation of challenges. In 2017, a team of Putnam SOLVE Fellows will work with the teams that submitted winning solutions to previous challenge competitions in two areas:
- Developing diagnostics for chronic diseases
- Brain health
We look forward to providing our expertise in global healthcare and new product development to important public health challenges, and to providing growth opportunities for Putnam colleagues to connect with MIT and global communities engaged in open innovation to address these challenges.
