Mission Statement

Engage and spur all sections of society to recognize and participate in introducing links between education and the real world through innovations, inventions and applications as a part of the curriculum; to create a platform for research pedagogy and train school and college faculty and students.
+ Salient Features
  • The Institute for Innovations and Inventions is an international research institute which will take up cutting edge projects and act as an interface between academia and industry. It shall soon have a state of the art campus in the Delhi NCR.

  • The Institute will focus on those inventions and inventions which can be realized by applications of Mathematics and Information Technology.

  • It is being set up as a Public-Private Partnership in collaboration with government agencies and private enterprise.

  • It will function as a global inter-University centre, attracting the leading scientists and institutions of the world to interact for knowledge generation and assimilation. The collaborations will also include joint curriculum and course development, streaming of courses and lectures, faculty exchange and training.

  • Information Technology shall also be used to extend the reach of the Institute beyond its own campus and centres to all parts of India, as well as internationally.

  • It will be staffed by eminent scientists, who will typically reside in it for short spells of time and will engage in long-term collaborations with its research groups.

  • Innovation shall not be confined to the research goals of the Institute, but extend to its structure and management.

  • The Institute shall not be confined to research scientists, but shall involve and train – in innovation – people drawn from various sectors of academia and industry, including college teachers and undergraduate students.

Thus, the ambition of the Institute is to engender innovation and implant it into the fabric of Indian life and work.

+ Practical Roadmap For Activities
  1. Training in Research Pedagogy

    On the basis of the activities of the Mathematical Sciences Foundation the following activities are being envisaged by the Institute for Innovations and Inventions:

    • Offer degree programs that encourage students to be innovative through ‘hands on’ applications.

    • Curriculum and course development for schools and colleges with innovation in the design and innovation and invention as a part of the learning.

    • Streaming of special courses and lectures by highly gifted teachers to a wide audience who can obtain credit from their home institutions for these courses.

    • In-service training of teachers for the purposes of providing them insights and training towards becoming better at motivating and exciting their students towards being innovative in their thinking.

    • Conducting special programmes where students and faculty work on specific projects and problems whose solutions come through innovations and inventions using mathematics and IT.

  2. Conducting Applications Oriented Research

    • The IIIMIT shall undertake state of the art research projects in current and emerging areas where mathematics and IT are interacting with other disciplines and with real-world problems. Some sample areas of interest are:

        • Signals Processing
        • Applied Harmonic Analysis
        • Complex Networks
        • Financial Modelling
        • Cryptography
      • Bioinformatics
      • VLSI & Chip design
      • Renewable Energy
      • Education Technology
      • Media Research
      • Robotics

  3. Setting up a Technology Business Incubation Centre

    • The Institute shall also carry out joint research with industry. Selected projects will be provided space as well as physical and academic resources at IIIMIT. Additionally, the IIIMIT will develop expertise in emerging areas and make it available to industry.

  4. Disseminating and Engendering Innovation in India

    • The Institute shall seek to set up innovation centres at the district level all over India. These will help discover and encourage innovation at the grassroots level, and provide innovators with a network providing technical and managerial support as well as access to other innovators and markets.

+ Faculty
  • The Institute will be staffed by eminent scientists, who will typically reside in it for short spells of time and will engage in long-term collaborations with IIIMIT research groups as well as associatedstudents and faculty from other institutions.

  • The IIIMIT shall also seek to support faculty who work with it at reduced levels of time commitment but are associated on a long-term basis. These will be highly valuable individuals who may be semi-retired or partially employed elsewhere.

  • The Institute will also employ post-doctoral fellows and host other young faculty.

  • We expect that IIIMIT will also attract Indian mathematicians and scientistswho are currently working abroad. These will be drawn by the Institute’s emphasis on cutting-edge innovation, the eminence of its faculty, and its high levels of infrastructural support and remuneration.

  • There will be a modest number of resident faculty at IIIMIT at any given time but the number will be higher when special programmes are being conducted.

  • The Institute will offer flexible employment schemes with varying terms and structures:

    • Young faculty will be offered 3-5 year contracts or tenure-track appointments.

    • Faculty will be allowed to collaborate with other institutions through dual appointments.

    • Faculty from other institutions will be given “Associate” status under which they will visit III in the summer or for special activities.

+ Academic Resources

The Institute is being established by the Mathematical Sciences Foundation, Delhi, which is a registered not-for-profit educational society. The Mathematical Sciences Foundation (MSF) has been engaged for several years in path-breaking and innovative programmes related to the teaching, understanding, learning and application of mathematics at the school, college and post-graduate levels. Its founders include some of India’s leading citizens, scientists and mathematicians. The ICICI Bank is an institutional member of MSF. Our activities have been supported by ICICI Bank, NASSCOM, Tata Interactive Systems, National Board for Higher Mathematics, University of Houston, and various other bodies
