Srinagar: Governor N.N. Vohra has urged the state government to develop student start-ups.
“JKEDI had already commenced the process for formulating the Start-Up Policy for the State,” vohra said while inaugurating the policy consultative workshop for academic Leaders of J&K at Raj Bhavan here today.
He urged the State Government to develop an innovation/student start-ups hub which can be linked to all the University hubs.
Vohra suggested that the higher education department could develop a holistic student innovation and start-up policy in line with the AICTE Start-Up Policy and each University in J&K should develop their own contextual framework to implement this policy across their affiliated institutes.
In addition, he said each college affiliated with a university should set up an innovation and start-up cell.
Annually, Vohra said the best student innovation and start-Ups could be showcased and awarded in a special function (Festival of Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship) hosted by Raj Bhavan with the Education Department to celebrate excellence and achievement of each University.
