Telengana Student Innovator Award 2018

As some wise soul said, innovation is not the result of chance, it is the result of deliberate action. It is not a thing to wait for; it is a thing to do. It is 99% perspiration.

In this hyper-connected world that we live in today, we are all nodes of one large interlinked ecosystem, one large self-learning network. Currently, certain nodes shine very brightly in this ecosystem like the Valley, New York City, Berlin, Singapore etc.

As mentioned in the Innovation Policy by the Government of Telangana, over the next few years, the State Government aims to plug Hyderabad right into the middle of this global network. It is clear that the right mix of ecosystem elements like mentorship, access to capital, safety net for experimentation, coupled with the conviction to follow up on a grand vision can do wonders.

To foster innovation midst the younger generation, ICT Academy, an initiative of Government of India, State Government and Industry has come up with ‘Student Innovator Award 2018’, for the students across the state.

Innovation no more happens on demand. Innovation has become the integral part of business, product, process, service and lifestyle. It is believed that innovation is the change that unlocks new value.

Innovation can only be nourished by creating environments for ideas to be developed. ICT Academy with this objective instituted the Student Innovator Award in the year 2012, through which the Academy thrives to enhance student knowledge and benefit society through professional education integrated with Research, Creativity and Innovation.

Telangana Student Innovator Award 2018 presents an opportunity for students to showcase their innovative projects state-wide and provides an environment to nurture their invention by discussing with the experts.

TelanganaStudent Innovator Award 2018 invites projects in the branches of Computer Science &Information Technology, Civil & Architecture, Mechanical & Automobile and Electrical & Electronics.
