Research should be a way of life: PM Modi



While addressing the finale of the Smart India Hackathon 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that the culture of innovation in India would grow on the back of social and institutional support. He highlighted that research and innovation must be turned into a “way of living”. Launched in 2017, the Hackathon is a nationwide initiative to provide students a platform to offer out-of-the-box ideas to solve problems in governance.

“The recognition of innovation as a profession is growing in society. Research and innovation must be transformed from a way of working to a way of living,” Modi emphasised.

Further, he added that the National Education Policy contains a roadmap for creating a strong foundation for innovation. “The country is working on big resolutions about how India will be in the 100th year of Independence. You are the innovators who are the flag-bearers of the slogan ‘Jai Anusandhan’ for the fulfillment of these resolutions.”
