CL Educate along with Kestone IMS Pvt Ltd recently organised MeltingPot 2020, which is said to be India’s first innovation summit.

The summit, according to a release issued here, witnessed a confluence of innovative ideas from corporates and academia. Participants discussed the challenges of key drivers such as Ed Tech, Auto Tech, the Internet of Things, Data Science and Analytics and energy efficiency, to name a few.

Organisers further said the symposium has paved the roadmap to create an innovation-fuelled global economy by breakthrough research, a much-needed catalyst for transforming India into one of the top 10 innovative countries.

Saraswat, Member, Niti Aayog and former Secretary - Defence R&D, said global demand for new-age skill sets in digital and big data analytics were largely unmet by traditional B-Schools, leaving students in a perennial fix. “There is, therefore, an urgent need to realise the potential of the youth by helping them cope with the challenges of the real world. MeltingPot is the platform that can help translate this to reality,” he said.

Piyush Gupta, President, Kestone Integrated Marketing Services said with over 315 million students in schools, India had the largest number of school children in the world. These young minds need to be streamlined and nurtured for global leadership.

Over 150 educational institutions, including IITs, IIMs, private and government universities took part in the two-day event.
