To create an easy to access, informative platform that can be consulted for information on the needs and solutions and provides a transparent plot of all involved parties. The platform facilitates dialogue between actors and specialists in various fields.

In our design lab we present the designs initiated by Non-profit organizations, Universities & Academic institutes, and manufacturers, designers and commercial parties. We provide a platform for all parties in the initiation phase to expose their researches. Shelterexpert.org does not accept fees from any parties and has no commercial interest in the products in the design lab.
All relief specialists, researchers, academics, universities, designers and manufacturers are invited to think with us to optimize the presented concept. We appreciate your feedback on this initiative highly.
The information regarding the available and required shelter items are accessible online by all involved parties. This can result to more transparency and direct communication, which leads to time saving, cheaper relief items, more choices and therefore better quality of sheltering relief.
