Innovative Initiatives > Mission Innovative India
In 2005, EMPI initiated the annual Indian Innovation Awards under the ‘Mission Innovative India’ with the blessings of the then President of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. The following year, The Boston Consulting Group joined in as the Research Partner and Process Validator and the awards were re-christened as the ‘ EMPI-Indian Express Innovation Awards’ with the joining in of the leading national group – The Indian Express. The Awards celebrate innovative corporate, non-corporate, government and network organizations as role models by documenting and disseminating their innovative stories.
Pursuant of the Innovation Mission EMPI has furthered a number of initiatives like the launching of the EMPI journal on interdisciplinary perspectives – ‘Innovations’, conducting jointly with the prestigious India International Centre, New Delhi, lecture series on the ‘The Change Agents – Innovative Indian Organizations’ and the introduction of the ‘International India Innovations Programme’ for International faculty, researchers and students.
