Tech pedia
creativity, collaboration, compassion
  • Welcome to techpedia

    Techpedia, an initiative at SRISTI aims at putting the problems of micro, small and medium enterprises, informal sector, grassroots innovators and other social sectors on the agenda of the young technology students across the country. For over last sixty years, India has not utilized much the technological outputs of millions of students. But no more. Can a knowledge society really afford to ignore the huge talent distributed in thousands of polytechnics, diploma and degree colleges of engineering, pharmacy, medical science, agriculture etc.? SRISTI is providing a platform for the industry and academic institutions to collaborate, co-create and foster distributed and horizontal innovations. Most of the ideas mentioned here have been implemented in the state of Gujarat in close cooperation with Gujarat Technical University and initial results are extremely encouraging.

    SRISTI and Honey Bee Network mourn the sad demise of former President of India, Bharat Ratna, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam whose birthday, Oct 15, has been celebrated by the Children's Creativity and Innovation Day. Dr Kalam who is also best known as missile man of India gave us the chance to take the grassroots innovations and children creativity to national stage. His inspiration enabled us to create an identity for the innovators & traditional knowledge holders to the new height at national and movement of grassroots innovation to global level. His loss is unimaginable and irreparable. We pray for his departed soul.
