During November 23-24, an awareness drive was conducted in the university to motivate students to avail prototype funding from NewGen IEDC for their projects. NewGen IEDC also conducts an annual hackathon titled as Idea-Thon to invite project ideas from students. These project ideas are given mentoring support to bring them to a level where they can be pitched for seeking funding support. Some of these ideas after successful pitching and evaluation by the jury are awarded funding support from NewGen IEDC for prototypes development. The objective of this awareness drive was also to promote Idea-Thon 2.0 among students. The drive was led by Mr. Chanpreet Singh – Project Manager, CURIN.
