National Innovation Foundation (NIF) will be organising the ‘Innovation Exhibition’ as a part of the Grassroots Innovators Summit, which aims at providing a common platform for various stakeholders—from innovators, students, researchers to policy makers. About 100 innovative technologies from all states of the country will be showcased at the exhibition. The special focus will be given to those which could be diffused socially and generate employment.
On this occasion, NIF will also demonstrate the incubation process and the successful partnerships between formal and informal sector, social diffusion stories, distinguished R&D efforts etc. The solutions based on grassroots innovations are cost effective, user friendly, suitable to local conditions or just appropriate for them. NIF has been trying consistently to contribute to development and diffusion of these innovations commercially and socially. Therefore, the exhibition at the IISF will expose the visitors and others to the pervasive culture of creativity and innovation at grassroots.There will also be Seminar/roundtable on innovations, incubation and entrepreneurship during the summit to educate and encourage the young aspirants to take innovations for start-ups.
