The 2-day event will bring students, researchers, academicians, industry representatives closer and will explore collaborative opportunities
All the 23 IITs of the country will come together for a mega Research & Development Fair to be held from October 14-15, 2022 at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi premises. The inaugural session will be graced by Union Minister for Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Shri Dharmendra Pradhan. A Steering Committee headed by Dr Pawan Goenka, Chairman, BoG IIT Madras and Dr BVR Mohan Reddy, Chairman, BoG IIT Hyderabad and IIT Roorkee, has been assigned to look after the event. Named IInvenTiv, the event is aimed at creating holistic awareness around the research and innovation work being done by the IITs and seeking collaborative avenues among state universities and institutes, industry and the IITs for better development and reach of the innovations at the grass roots level.
It will showcase projects on diverse areas covering climate change, sustainability, smart city architecture, rural agriculture, affordable healthcare, drone technology and so on. The objective is to promote innovations in line with the Make in India, and Digital India initiatives and seek solutions for better reach and scalability of innovations that benefit the masses across regions.
The event would also host administrators and students from institutions from tier 2 and tier 3 cities for them to have a closer glimpse of the R&D ecosystem of IITs and in turn inculcate similar innovation-driven outlook towards developing projects of national interest. It would facilitate a comprehensive understanding of the requirements at the grass roots level in key areas such as agriculture, rural development, sanitation, resource management etc. and would engage them to develop innovations that make a positive impact on a larger section of society.
