National Innovation Council: An Introduction

PM of India has constituted a National Innovation Council with distinguished members from various fields.

The NInC will seek to create a strategy for fostering innovations at the National, State and sectoral levels by focusing on five key parameters: Platform, Inclusion, Eco-system, Drivers and Discourse.

The aim will be to re-define innovations to go beyond formal R&D parameters; facilitate innovative solutions that lead to inclusive growth for the people and by the people; foster an innovation eco-system across domains and sectors to strengthen entrepreneurship; focus on key drivers to ensure sustainability, durability and quality and expand the space for dialogue and discourse on innovation.

NInC will also be involved in facilitating State level and sectoral innovations.

This will create an eco-system to boost innovation performance in the country.
