National Innovation and Start-up Policy (NISP)

The “National Innovation and Start-up Policy 2019 for students and faculty” was launched to guide Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in promoting innovations & start-ups driven by students. The policy aims for active participation from students and faculties in activities related to start-up and innovation which will enable HEIs to build, streamline and strengthen innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem in campus. The policy will be implemented by MoE’s Innovation Cell in coordination with UGC, AICTE, Governments of State/UT and universities.

In this context an Eight-member committee at Karnavati University was formed. The committee has formulated guidelines which will help in developing an ecosystem for Start-ups and Entrepreneurship at the campus. The committee deliberated on various measures to nurture and inculcate the culture of Innovation and Entrepreneurship amongst the students and staff members of the university. A separate technology integrated design business incubator has been formed named Karnavati Innovation and Incubation Foundation (KIIF). The University has also created Institution’s Innovation council (IIC) to strengthen the culture of innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem across its students and faculties.

After significant deliberations, Karnavati University Innovation and Startup Policy was prepared in alignment with ‘National Innovation and Start-up Policy 2019 for students and faculty’.
