The President's Secretariat in association with Department of Science & Technology/National Innovation Foundation-India is organizing Festival of Innovation (FOIN) for the last three years at Rashtrapati Bhavan in the month of March.

This year it has been decided to organize Festival of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (FINE) from March 19-21, 2018 at Rashtrapati Bhavan. An exhibition associated with FINE will remain open from March 19, 2018 - March 23, 2018. FINE is a celebration of country's Innovation potential, particularly those ideas which stem from grassroots level including the citizen at the last mile and also a reflection of power of children’s creativity.

FINE would provide an excellent platform to the innovators for building the linkages with potential stakeholders whose support can improve their prospects in coming years for the larger social good. It will also help in promoting lateral learning and linkages among the innovators to enrich the ecosystem for new India. It would also be a great opportunity to create awareness about the importance of various Ministries of Government of India attaches to their effort and participation in the FINE.

In order to make the FINE more inclusive, in addition to grassroots innovators and innovators nominated by various ministries, we propose to consider display of innovations by innovators from common public (specifically not associated with any institutes or ministries) in FINE.

Innovators/Entrepreneurs may send their proposals by February 28, 2018 to fine@rb.nic.in. Selection will be by a Committee headed by Secretary, Department of Science & Technology, for this purpose.
