Tech for Good: Role of Technology in Enabling Innovations in Emerging Markets
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM: Breakout
Room: Broadway III (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: India is witnessing rapid growth in innovations across several industries. This is evident from the Global Innovation Index rankings in which India climbed from 81st to 57th position from 2015 to 2018. This innovation growth is largely spurred by the increase in availability and adopting new technology solutions in India. The huge success of Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), a flagship programme of the Government of India is a strong testimony to this fact. Under AIM, tinkering labs equipped with the latest technologies have been established across schools in India to enable young students to develop innovative prototypes and solve real-life problems. Technology-supported innovations are the key to a high skilled, innovative, and entrepreneurial India of 2030.
