India Innovation Growth Programme 2.0


IIGP 2.0 - 2018 Edition is Now Live

Last date for submission: 18th May 2018

An initiative idea of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, Lockheed Martin and Tata Trusts leaded to the “India Innovation Growth Programme (IIGP) 2.0”.

“India Innovation Growth Programme (IIGP) 2.0” enhances the Government of India’s “Start-up India” and “Make in India”, by creating innovators with their new innovation and creativity, which inturn will lead to development of  technology-based solutions for tomorrow. 

Complemented by several implementation partners,

~ Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI),

~ Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF),
~ Center for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) at IIM Ahmedabad,

~ Indian Institute of Technology Bombay  

~ Tata Center for Technology and Design at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

India Innovation Growth Programme (IIGP) has been launced in 2007 and continuing as one of India’s longest standing public-private partners.

trial Sector
1.Autonomy - Technologies that provide capabilities enabling a system to perform specific action in a “self-governing” manner.

2.Internet of Things - Devices embedded with sensors (acoustic, radio-frequency, magnetic, inertial, image processing) and Wi-Fi connectivity that measure and process signals from physical objects to enhance safety, efficiency, and/or quality of life.

3.Data Analytics - The science of discovering and communicating actionable insights based on data and data processing, and machine learning. Consider applications in biometrics and awareness of human condition based on sensor data.

4.Electronics Hardware - The technology by which electronics will advance into the next generation of computing power, thermal management and application-flexibility.

5.Energy and Power Technology - Devices that convert one form of energy into another (For example: electrical to chemical, thermal to electrical, etc.).

6.Biological Technologies - The incorporation of biologic monitoring and/or biologic sensing into commercial and human systems, safety in potentially bio-hazardous environments, and human performance monitoring in critical situations (driving cars late at night, pilots flying in stressful environments, etc.).

7.Communication - Communication at times when signal transmitting is limited (e.g., during and immediately after a natural disaster, in remote areas, undersea, etc.) among various devices, from phones and computers to communicative IoT devices.

8.Cyber Security - As connectivity increases, ensuring our data remains protected no matter where it is, and that our critical systems – infrastructure, vehicles, and medical devices – are not compromised.

9.Thermal Management and Acoustics/Thermo-acoustics - Given temperature constraints of even advanced materials, consider the effects of aero-thermal heating and management techniques. Consider also the advanced acoustical reduction techniques in engines, generators, etc.

10.Advanced Materials - Materials that have a breakthrough in resistance to heat and/or ultra-high thermal conductivity, materials with metamaterial properties, flexible materials that can be embedded with electronics

11.Smart Infrastructure Design: Smart Cities and Integrated Habitats
