The regional group of Technology without Borders in Brazil is was founded in 2017 as Brazilian association acording the brazilian law. Our group is located at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) in Araranguá, in the state of Santa Catarina. In order to support engineering students in the implementation of low-cost technologies in developing regions, the association aims to improve the living conditions of developing countries. The Ideia emerged in Germany, in the city of Nuremberg in 2010, where the association Technik ohne Grenzen was founded. Our members are professors and students from different areas such as energy engineering and IT and receive support from professionals and companies to develop their projects. Our regional group works primarily in three areas: 1. Development and implementation of low-cost energy technologies in the region of Araranguá, promote effective use of available energy resources and renewable energy as part of sustainable development. 2. Providing training and education to local populations about these technologies and encouraging sustainable development through, for example, micro-enterprise initiatives. 3. an agroforestry pilot project in cooperation with local organic farmers.
