INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT CENTRE
In order to promote and encourage young entrepreneurs Vijnan Institute of Science and Technology (VISAT) has set up an Innovation & Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) that is sponsored by Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of India to develop an entrepreneurial culture among the academic institutions. The objective of establishing an IEDC is to set up an institutional mechanism to create self-employment opportunities and to convert "job-seekers" into "job-generators".
Every year this centre provides financial support to a good number of students for developing innovative products. Patent is made available for each idea. Apart from this financial support we are providing mentoring and infrastructural support for these projects. The outcome of these projects is aimed to bring new products to the market or to develop new methodologies so as to generate/ manufacture existing products in a more cost effective and environment friendly way. Also this centre arranges many classes and camps to promote technology based innovation and entrepreneurship among the students.
To foster entrepreneurial culture among students, IEDC conducts various training programmes like Entrepreneurship Awareness Programmes (EACs), Entrepreneurship Development Programmes (EDPs) and Faculty Development Programmes (FDPs) etc. By doing so, IEDC has taken the first baby step to bridge the gap between education and industry. IEDC also establishes better linkages with industries, R&D institutions, financial institutions and other related organizations engaged in promoting small & medium enterprises (SMEs) including DST, NSIC, EDI, NIESBUD etc. our IEDC Website is www.iedcvisat.in.
