NISP

The National Innovation and Startup Policy

In November 2016, All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) released a Startup Policy document for AICTE approved institutions, to address the need of inculcation of innovation and entrepreneurial culture in higher education institutions (HEIs). The policy primarily focused on guiding the AICTE approved institutions in implementing the ‘Startup Action Plan’ of the Government of India. Subsequent to release of the Startup policy by AICTE and further interaction & feedback received from education institutions, a fifteen member committee constituted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development formulated the National Innovation and Startup Policy 2019 for students and faculties of HEIs. The policy gives detailed guidelines for various aspects related to innovation, Start-up and entrepreneurship management essential for nurturing the innovation and Start-up culture in HEIs, covering important aspects like Intellectual Property ownership, revenue sharing mechanisms, norms for technology transfer and commercialization, equity sharing, etc. XITE joined the NISP campaign in November, 2020 with an aim to participate in the promotion of a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem in the College and the neighbourhood.
