Atal Community Innovation Centre (ACIC), a new initiative under Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), is directed to encourage the spirit of innovation through solution driven design thinking to serve the society. It will focus on underserved/unserved regions of the country which at present lack a vibrant startup and innovation ecosystem. ACIC aims to create more design-aware societies, enabling them to leverage design principles to be able to build more human-centric, meaningful innovations.
My role in the program as a Design Intern was to contribute to the Program Design and Operational Manual, apart from assisting with day to day activities in the space. Snippets of my research and few photographs from the launch are as below:
Extremely thankful to my Program Director: Dr Unnat Pandit, and my colleagues: Pratik Kumar, Ankita Singh and Jaspreet Chawla for this opportunity and their constant guidance throughout this project.
