Planetarium Innovation Challenge by GOI

Registration Closing Date: 10/10/2021 (refer Contest Link) Reward: 10 Lakh INR

About the Contest :

India has made great strides in space research under the able leadership of Indian space scientists and today ISRO is considered the most capable and competitive space agency, compared to the best in the world. India's space missions have sparked increased interest among students and young people in space research and understanding to learn more about outer space.

Planetariums in subways and other large cities attract a large number of students and offer a first exhibition to learn more about Space. Efforts have been made to increase the availability of planetariums in small towns and even in rural areas. Around the world, efforts have been made to integrate augmented reality (A.R.), virtual reality (V.R.) and merged reality (M.R.) technologies into planetariums. Mobile planetariums have also become popular and offer people in rural areas the opportunity to experience a planetarium. Several Indian start-ups and tech companies have the potential to create such AR / VR / MR solutions as well as mobile planetarium solutions. With the aim of recognizing the best Indian solutions of this type, MyGov, under the leadership of the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), the Indian government, invites applications from Indian startups and technology entrepreneurs for an innovation challenge aimed at developing cutting-edge technology. for our Planetariums. The selected solutions will not only receive cash rewards, but also the possibility to deploy them in various cities and rural areas by listing them on the GeM portal.
