The last decade has witnessed some of the major innovations that have transformed the ways of health-care, agriculture, education, communication and networking of people. Whereas the world is moving ahead with increasing communication and collaborative efforts in dealing with societal problems and issues, creation of local network of academic institutions is paramount for socioeconomic growth of different regions. The proposed workshop is the first in the region to provide exposure to students, researchers, budding entrepreneurs and faculty to the world of real life problem solving and social entrepreneurship through innovations and collaborative research. As Institutions of higher learning in the region, we are committed to promote and facilitate social entrepreneurship and technological innovations in order to accelerate economic growth and to contribute meaningfully in India's mission to emerge as a knowledge power.
