We are happy to inform you that SRISTI is organising third summer school on inclusive innovation program from June 5th, 2015 to June 25th, 2015. We are inviting enthusiastic young minds who wish to spend their summer break in the process of solving social challenges with possible mass impact in the following fields:
Who can participate ?
Students from UG, PG and PhD from across the country; having inclination to solve social challenges through technological innovations in the following disciplines can participate in this programme:
SRISTI will bring in mentors and related experts to help participants fine tune their designs and fabricate their solutions. The organiser will bear the cost of field research, prototyping and fabrication of the innovations. SRISTI would like to acknowledge each participant’s successful contribution with a certificate. SRISTI would also like to make the innovation open source so that the people in need can benefit out of them without any restriction. In case of any patent filing for defensive purposes, we will acknowledge the innovator.
A common framework to be replicated across engineering universities and colleges will be developed. The purpose is to involve young students in summer vacations to solve real life social challenges and make sustainable impact. We will publish the best interventions and success stories thorough Honey Bee Network newsletter and Techpedia portal to encourage many more young minds to contribute towards this cause.
