Posted by


Aiming to boost innovation and promote new ideas, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar has announced the setting up of an ‘Innovation Cell’ in the Ministry of Human and Resource Development (HRD).

The Union Minister announced this after a high-level review meeting on Wednesday which deliberated upon the need for such a cell after India moved six ranks up the Global Innovation Index Ranking.
Ministry of HRD also tweeted, “‘Innovation Cell’ to be set up in @HRDMinistry to promote #Innovation further – HRD Minister @PrakashJavdekar (1/3)#TransformingIndia #Research #NewIndia”
In a series of tweet, the ministry said, “There has been considerable improvement in India’s ranking in Global Innovation Index 2017. Since the large part of Global Innovation Index relates to Education, the setting up of Innovation Cell in the Ministry will lead to more focused attention on innovation and research efforts.”
