Engineers in Technical and Humanitarian Opportunities of Service
Engineers in Technical and Humanitarian Opportunities of Service (ETHOS) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to facilitate research and the development of appropriate technology by forming collaborative North-South partnerships between universities, research laboratories, engineers, and non-governmental organizations in foreign countries.
By working together, these groups aim to create and then disseminate the best available appropriate technology to families in need.
Since its founding, the ETHOS partnership has grown to include engineering students, faculty, and researchers as well as “on-the-ground” NGOs. Research at Iowa State University, the University of Dayton, Humboldt State University, Colorado State University, and the University of Illinois currently focuses on improving vernacular wood burning cooking stoves, including increasing efficiency and effectiveness while reducing emissions, addressing problems brought forward by the in-field partners.
