Transforming the World of Education
Recognizing the immense contribution of innovations in national growth, 2010-2020 was declared as the ‘Decade of Innovation’ by the Government of India. To contribute to this, CRP functions with the primary objective of working on innovative ideas and exploring joint research groups from Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh and Chitkara International School.
By participating in the Collaborative Research Project, faculty members find colleagues with whom they can collaborate and students who may be interested in assisting with their projects. With this vision, 12-14 teams have been formed from both the institutes, Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh and Chitkara International School to work on this initiative with Dr Sartajvir Singh, IPR Cell Coordinator, Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh, as the mentor.
Referring to the excellent opportunity to think of out-of-the-box solutions for everyday problems for school students, Dr Niyati Chitkara, Director, Chitkara International Schools remarked, “It is an excellent opportunity for our young thinkers who have been mentored by senior academicians from Chitkara University and this will go a long way in developing a scientific temperament among the school students.”
