Led by Johannes Schwank, REFRESCH is an international team of educators and researchers passionate about improving the livelihoods of resource-constrained communities. We believe that effective solutions for sustainable energy, water and food-security can be achieved by combining skills development, collaborative design, and rigorous assessment. REFRESCH is funded by the University of Michigan Third Century Initiative and is headquartered at the University of Michigan Energy Institute. The project is focused on finding solutions to specific, solvable, scalable problems in the areas of food, energy, and water (FEW). Funded at $3 million for three years, REFRESCH is currently active in Gabon, Kazakhstan, and Michigan.
