Themes of the Contest

Competition for 2022 focussed on below Themes

Accessibility and Inclusion is an important aspect for the wellbeing of a society. Physical and mental abilities vary based on various factors like age, gender, disabilities and differently ableness. However, most of the services, utility or leisure avenues are built without this sensitivity. Can we address or remedy this using small, incremental, or disruptive ideas?

Population in focus – Disabled / differently abled / aged / young; Marginalised (gender, class, social)

Possible utilities or services – Learning (digital, physical); Hygiene and healthcare; Govt services; Public place and leisure

Theme 1
Accessibility and Inclusion

Theme 2
Rural Well-being

Technology is agnostic to geography, so we refrain from using terms like Rural Technology.

In this theme, we are expecting innovative ideas or projects that can improve living condition or livelihood of rural population or aid in improving village economics and eco systems. The focus of such innovations is being frugal, sustainable and using appropriate technologies.

Possible focus areas could be – Agriculture (productivity, storage, tools etc), Supporting local occupations (Crafts, arts etc), Improving connectivity (physical and digital)

Theme 3
Micro enterprises

94% of our workforce is from the Unorganised sector. These are very small enterprises owned and run by few people. Due to constraints on investment, they usually do not have access to the standard tools of professionally running an enterprise like governance, quality assurance, supply chain, automation, accounting, productivity management etc.

Ignite 2022 Curtain Raiser was inaugurated by Hon. Minister for Higher Education and Social Justice Dr. R Bindu on Jan 1, 2022 followed by felicitations by Dr. Rajasree MS (Hon. Vice-Chancellor, KTU) and Dr. Asharaf S (Dean of Digital University of Kerala).
