Institution's Innovation Council

Welcome to IICell

Ministry of HRD has established Institutes Innovation Cell with the mandate to work closely with our Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to encourage the creative energy of our student population to work on new ideas and innovation and promote them to create start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures.
Innovation Cell will focus on creating a complete ecosystem that will foster the culture of Innovation across all educational institutions from ideas generation to pre-incubation, incubation, and graduating from the incubator as successful start-ups. The primary mandate of MIC is to encourage, inspire, and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas while they are in formative years. MIC has envisioned the creation of the Institutional Innovation Council (IICs) across selected HEIs. A network of these IICs will be established to promote innovation in the Institution through multitudinous modes leading to an innovation promotion eco-system on these campuses.
