Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), and Ministry of Education’s Innovation Cell has announced their strategic collaboration which aims to empower Atal Tinkering Lab school (ATLs) students for world-class future-ready innovation skills across the country. It was announced in a virtual event organised on the occasion of Dr BR Ambedkar Jayanti.

This collaboration will help to connect around 7200 plus Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs) established in schools with more than 2500 Institution’s Innovation Councils (IICs) functioning in higher educational institutions spread across all the states and Union Territories. 
 
ATLs in schools are equipped with facilities and provide tinkering opportunities to school students to visualise and work on innovative projects which will improve their innovation abilities. On the other hand, IICs in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) take the institution’s innovation capability and facility to engage students and faculties in innovation and entrepreneurship activities and will provide the opportunity to think, innovate and become entrepreneurs.
 
This move is also aligned with the NEP 2020 objective of bridging the gap between schools and higher educational institutions. The adoption process will see actions of online mentoring, lecture sessions, group projects, visits of key stakeholders, etc. from both sides.
 
“AICTE and AIM have developed a strategic partnership over the last couple of years. The adoption of ATLs and their students by AICTE IICs in proximity to the ATLs will greatly enhance the spurring of relevant knowledge and innovative thinking in the ATL school students leveraging the various innovation-related training and innovation workshop initiatives from IICs” said R Ramanan, Mission Director, AIM during this virtual event.
 
Dr Anil Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE highlighted upon the training of students as well as inculcating Indian Knowledge Systems and values associated with it and said, "I am really happy about this collaboration through which we not only just mentor innovative students but also embed the Indian knowledge sharing value systems among them. I believe giving back to society is a much more crucial value to be imbibed in itself. Therefore, while we aim to embed IoT, Robotics, machine learning, deep learning, 3D, blockchain, augmented reality, virtual reality etc and train students, we must also focus on how it also endorses along with value systems."
