Institution’s Innovation Council (IIC)

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India, has established MHRD’s Innovation Cell (MIC) to systematically foster the culture of Innovation amongst all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The primary mandate of MIC is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas and transform them into prototypes while they are informative years. MIC has envisioned encouraging creation of ‘Institution’s Innovation Council (IICs)’ across selected HEIs. Our J.K.K. Nattraja College of Pharmacy has been nominated by the MHRD to establish Institution’s Innovation Council (IIC) as per the norms of Innovation Cell, MHRD, Government of India.

IIC for our institution is formed as per the norms prescribed by MIC under the presidentship of Dr. R Sambathkumar, Principal, JKKNCP. All the members of the IIC are committed to support activities suggested by MIC as per prescribed schedule and timelines. The committee has decided to hold the meeting once in a month
