ATAL RANKING OF INSTITUTIONS ON INNOVATION ACHIEVEMENTS
Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) will encourage healthy competiveness among Higher Educational Institutions.
For India to emerge as a global innovation hub, the youth of our country, especially in higher education institutions (HEIs) need to play a crucial role to create a sustainable innovation ecosystem.
Hence, ideally all HEIs should have a comprehensive and functional mechanism to convert research into innovations.
This ecosystem will encourage, inspire and nurture young students by exposing them to new ideas and processes resulting in innovative activities in their formative years.
To ensure that Innovation is primary fulcrum of all HEIs, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India is introducing ‘Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA)’ to systematically rank education institutions and universities primarily on innovation related indicators.
ARIIA considers all major indicators which are commonly used globally to rank most innovative education institutions/ universities in the world.
ARIIA will focus on quality of innovations and will try to measure the real impact created by these innovations nationally and internationally.
ARIIA will primarily focus on 5 main parameters
- Budget Expenses and Revenue generated through Innovation and entrepreneurship development
- Facilitating access to advance centres / facilities and entrepreneurial support system
- Idea to Entrepreneurship
- Development of Innovation Ecosystems Supported through Teaching & Learning
- Best innovative solutions Developed In-house for Improving Governance of Your Institution
NOTE: more weightage in ranking is given to the idea to entrepreneurship
