Introduction


“Creativity is thinking up new things; Innovation is doing new things” - Theodore Levitt

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India has established ‘MHRD’s Innovation Cell (MIC)’ to systematically foster the culture of Innovation amongst all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The primary mandate of MIC is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas and transform them into prototypes while they are informative years.

MHRD’s Innovation Cell (Government of India) has envisioned encouraging creation of ‘Institution’s Innovation Council (IICs)’ across selected Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). A network of these IICs is being established to promote innovation in the Institution through multitudinous modes leading to an innovation promotion eco-system in the campuses.
