NEW DELHI: IIT-Delhi, in its next phase of growth, aims to touch a billion lives through its technologies. As part of its diamond jubilee celebrations, the IIT, which is among the 10 government-run institutions of eminence, released its 10-year aspiration plan.
Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu inaugurated the yearlong celebrations via videoconferencing on Monday.
Releasing the diamond jubilee logo and the institute’s strategy document titled ‘IIT Delhi- Setting the vision and direction for 2030,’ Naidu said: “IIT-Delhi has made rapid strides in the last six decades and today it is counted among the reputed institutions in the world… It is heartening to note that over half of India’s unicorns have come out of this single institute…”
Naidu further said: “I am told that the institute is planning to file over 200 patents this year as against 153 patents filed in 2019. IIT-Delhi has emerged as a leader in the entrepreneurship space in the country. It is good to note that institutions, such as IIT-Delhi, are producing job providers rather than job seekers and becoming trendsetters for other institutions…”
