  1. 1. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Network MAY 2013
  2. 2. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Network • To create an eco-system for design innovation and education in the country the National Innovation Council has outlined three proposals: • Creation of Design Innovation Centres (DICs) under the aegis of MHRD as new models of design education • Creation of an Open Design School (ODS) to enhance access to design education • Establishment of a National Design Innovation Network (NDIN) to connect design schools and professionals to a range of stakeholders

  4. 4. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Centres  The National Innovation Council has been developing a proposal under the aegis of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) for setting up a network of Design Innovation Centres as new models of design education, co-located in Institutes of National Importance  Co-location in campuses of national repute like IITs/NITs will help leveraging of academic and industry resources and give a boost to design capacity in the country.
  5. 5. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Centres: Key Features  DICs will be specialised design research institutions  DICs should be co-located in existing educational and research institutions that do not currently have a design programme, thereby infusing the principles of design thinking into academic institutions.  The underlying mandate of each DIC would be to scout for innovation opportunities in both economic and social domains, and to determine priorities for action in a structured but open process  DICs may chose to have a regional focus (local crafts/local industry/ environmental needs/skill development needs, etc.), and/or could focus on the host institution’s core function. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_thinking
  6. 6. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Centres: Key Features  DICs will be free to network and partner with other institutions, and will not be limited in any way by their being co-located with the host institution.  In addition to sharing faculty with host institutions, their own permanent staff, DICs will have rotating faculty comprising of working professionals from varied educational and professional backgrounds, as well as international faculty through extensive ties with leading design institutions across the world.  DICs will promote collaborative learning between students of the DIC and of the host institution.
  7. 7. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Centres: Key Features  DICs will share physical and intellectual resources with the host institution and other design schools, to facilitate cross-disciplinary learning and research.  DICs will have autonomy in designing course content and delivery methods, in order to respond rapidly to change, and to continuously improve methods.  DICs will work closely with NDIN to take innovative student projects from successful prototypes to a committed business venture
  8. 8. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Design Innovation Centres: Status  In the 12th Five Year Plan the Ministry of HRD has approved 5 host institutions for the first five Design Innovation Centres to be set up in the financial year 2012-2013  These include: IIT- Bombay, IIT-Delhi, IIT-Guwahati, IISC- Bangalore, and the University of Delhi. The implementation plan is currently being discussed with MHRD and NInC has also suggested an Advisory Committee for this purpose to be created under the purview of the Ministry.
  9. 9. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations Open Design School  ODS is envisaged as a multi-disciplinary design school with a flexible curriculum, responsive pedagogic strategy, and rotating faculty from the best design institutions across the world.  ODS will aim to share its design curriculum and other design learning resources freely online, through an Open Course Ware (OCW) model, bringing access to design education to the entire country.  Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been sharing its learning material through the OCW model since 2002. The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL ) is an initiative funded by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India, and is doing similar work. http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/
  10. 10. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations National Design Innovation Network  NDIN is envisaged as a network that connects design schools and professionals to a wide range of stakeholders, including academic institutions, government, industry, social organisations and the public, to work collaboratively to provide design solutions for India.  The ODS and NDIN proposals are still at a preliminary stage
