Collaborative Learning Lab

The MSF Foundation is supporting the development of a training course for MSF coordinators running emergency operations in conflict or major disaster situations.

Our areas of intervention



Based on technological innovations (3D technologies, artificial intelligence, digital transformation...), we develop solutions to field problems. After a study and test phase, our goal is to deploy those innovations on the MSF Association's fields of action and to share them with the entire sector.



To validate new medical protocols and initiate large scale practice changes, we support medical research conducted by other institutional actors. These researches, carried out in the field, are chosen for their transformative potential.



Within The MSF Foundation, the CRASH aims to stimulate debate and critical reflection on ground practices and more generally on the humanitarian world. In addition, at The MSF Foundation, we offer scholarships to MSF executives to favor skill building through training.
