E-Yantra Innovation Challenge (formerly e-Yantra Ideas Competition) is a competition to solicit innovative projects from engineering / science / polytechnics colleges across the country. Aim of the initiative:

  • Theme-driven innovation challenge, to solve real-world problems in its locality

  • Domain specific training to instill reflection on real world issues

  • Encourage sustained use of lab space available in college / university

  • Provide a platform for teams to present their projects to a potential incubator

  • Encourage startup culture in colleges / universities

  • Create a sustainable ecosystem driven by students and faculty

Contest Theme:

This Year eYIC focus on Disaster management

Disasters are broadly classified into NATURAL DISASTERS and USUAL DISASTERS. The destruction caused by either leads to loss of life, property damage and a temporary shutdown of the economy. Many of us think that disasters are inevitable, and they are, but we can reduce the destruction they cause. Over the years, DM authorities have worked on hazard and risk assessments; awareness and education; mitigation; preparedness for emergency response, recovery and reconstruction; prediction and warning; strategies for learning from disasters; and international cooperation. These seven verticals give us a scaffolding to design technology that can help us mitigate the effects of death and destruction from disasters.
