Innovation and  Ecosystem

Why Innovation Ecosystem in Educational Institutes of Nepal is important?
This can be achieved by supportive ecosystem, dedication, and efforts of our innovators and entrepreneurs in educational institutes. Young entrepreneurs of Nepal should educate policy makers of Nepal to start thinking of strive to be a knowledge-based economy, which is not possible without innovative sprit and entrepreneurship within our educational institutions.

Educational institutions of Nepal should shift their mind-set and create environment that supports high-quality research, innovation, and entrepreneurship leading to commercialization and technology transfer. Computer Association of Nepal along with other concern stakeholders should work aggressively towards keep data of enrolled students and their performances especially of projects in order to promote them into young enterprisers in order to make them capable of generating HUMAN CAPITAL for Nepal anf abroad.

Universities and public research institutions play an important role in innovation systems, where economic benefits are less certain and rather protracted. Universities are typically centers of innovation, talent development and knowledge capital creation. Policy makers should encourage our educational institutes and concernd stakeholders to focus on building innovation eco-system within their campuses. It will be the mandate of these institutions to produce good employers in large numbers that will cater to the aspirations of the next generation Nepal. Institutions will have to imbibe the spirit of entrepreneurial thinking, which includes rapid adaptation to the societal needs, developing and scaling in resource constrained environments and serving as local points or nodes of innovation and entrepreneurship, to reach our national goal. 

The leveraging on strategic partnerships to support successful and emerging youth-led projects is recommended. Partnerships developed by youth groups and priva te-sector agencies could inspire change and transformation. Youth are a prime resource for transformation. Rapid economic and social transformation cannot be achieved if the voices of the youth and the efforts of state and non-state youth-led agencies are ignored and unsupported.

The university curriculum of various sectors need to be reviewed in order to be aligned in the changing context of technological revolution.
