Hon’ble President of India during his meeting with NITs Directors had highlighted the importance of knowledge-driven society and highlighted the significance of innovation in present times. The creation, application and dissemination of knowledgehave resulted in competition, economic growth and transformation of society.

However, it is observed that many knowledge creating activities do not go beyond the classroom in an institute. Therefore, there is an urgent need to focus on the importance of innovation in our education system so as to play a pivotal role in imbibing spirit of innovation among the students, faculty and other stakeholders. This would certainly help in evolving sustainable solutions and improving quality of life and make world a better place for the younger generation.
