The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has established an innovation cell at the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).

 

The cell is aimed to encourage and brainstorm new ideas about promoting innovation in all higher education institutions (HEIs) across the country. The union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar launched the cell at the AICTE headquarters through video conferencing.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Javadekar said, “This will be a significant step in institutionalising innovation and developing a scientific temperament in the country. The purpose of formation of network of Institution’s Innovation Councils (IICs) is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by exposing them to new ideas and processes resulting in innovative activities in their formative years.”

 

“More than 1,000 HEIs have already formed IICs in their campuses and enrolled for the IIC network managed by MHRD’s innovation cell to promote innovation through multitudinous modes leading to an innovation promotion eco-system in their campuses,” he said.

 

Emphasising on the need of research in higher education institutes, the minister stated that the varsities are the main research centers of developed countries and because of their research they are at the top in global innovation ranking.

 

“Now Indian universities are also setting up research centers through the IIC programme and we are expecting good rank in global innovation ranking in next two to three years through this initiative,” he added.
