Skill buildingOpportunities Supporting ideas Interest based convergence
A program to promote interdisciplinary student research An annual fund of INR 1-2 crores for student projects (the amount can be augmented if required) Currently major projects that are supported are: Nanosatellite, Lunar Rover, Glucoband, Abhyast (multi-purpose automatic vehicle) 6
More opportunities and exposure Value addition Getting financial incentives and accreditation Students Development of relationships with students, fostering trust and team work. Quality and quantity of students participating in your area of interest increases Satisfaction Faculty Opportunity of growing and /or getting attached to an interface involved in strong networking between resourceful bright past and present students of IIT. Alumni Finding Innovative and Cost Effective Solution Developing Highly Skilled Technical Workforce Involvement Of Energetic Young Minds Outside Agencies

16 CRUX: Most important part of the idea/process/algorithm/ device or any endeavor. CRUX-1 Student propose, defend and solve Help: faculty, alumni, outside agency A first year student proposed catching on vapors CRUX-2 Alumni/outside agency propose a problem Student: propose, defend and solve Help: faculty, alumni, outside agency Our IITD team is working on a problem offered by bread making company, Harvest Gold.
17 Real-world Linkage Activism, Critical thinking, Innovation, Outreach * Industry-Academia Interaction: Industry-academia meets at Kanpur and NCR * Policy Perspectives: Conferences on innovation, Investment University * Local innovation ecosystems: Interaction with MSMEDI, textile, chemical, apparel and garment sector industries of Kanpur; interaction with Kanpur Development Authority, Water and Pollution Boards and different local bodies * Appropriate Technology * Synergy between IITs and other colleges: Workshop on ICT attended by more than 20 colleges from the country
18 Area Representative * Each area of research/interest will be having an area representative; one will be a student and another Alumni * Around 175 areas identified for alumni-student interaction KoMent: Council of Mentors: Council of all project mentors, faculty supervisors and area representatives Intellectual Property * Patents, Design, Copyright, Semiconductor Layouts and Design Technology Management * Product Identification, Technology Status report, Technology Cycle, Technology standards, accreditation, calibration & Testing, Technology- Competition, Legal issues, Trade-Secrets. Innovation and Technology Management
19 Innovation Database (ID): Database of students, faculty, alumni, researchers and external agencies. * Mapping: 1 to 1 mapping of alumni and students as per their interest/expertise/choice Technical Counseling * Thesis/Project Counselling 21 CC Engine for Sustainability Activism, Co-existence, Experimentation * Environment, habitat, energy, society, education, inclusive growth, nutrition, transparency, security, infrastructure
