Updated on 23 Aug, 2019


In IGNOU where the students are geographically spread, it becomes imperative to set up innovation clubs at the Study Centres of IGNOU including the International Partner Institutes (PI) also. As one of the activities of the InnovationClub@IGNOU, constitution of innovation clubs at the international Partner Institutes (InnovationClubs@PIs) of IGNOU have been initiated. 
 
The basic objectives of the InnovationClub@PIs are to :
  • generate awareness about creativity and innovations amongst the students in the respective region,
  • identify the grass-root innovations by the faculty members, staff members and the students of IGNOU in the Partner Institutes, and
  • create a network of innovators and create a culture of innovation at the Partner Institutes.

Towards this endeavor, an Innovation club at Partner Institute in Kathmandu, Nepal has been set up. The club has been named as IGNOU InnovationClub@ICA.
