Context: Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) 2020 has been launched.


About ARIIA:

  • ARIIA considers all major indicators which are commonly used globally to rank most innovative education institutions/ universities in the world.
  • More than quantity, ARIIA will focus on quality of innovations and will try to measure the real impact created by these innovations nationally and internationally.


ARIIA will primarily focus on 5 main parameters:

  1. Budget Expenses and Revenue generated through Innovation and entrepreneurship development.
  2. Facilitating access to advance centres / facilities and entrepreneurial support system.
  3. Idea to Entrepreneurship.
  4. Development of Innovation Ecosystems Supported through Teaching & Learning.
  5. Best innovative solutions Developed In-house for Improving Governance of Your Institution.


Significance of ARIIA:

  1. Inspire Indian institutions to reorient their mind-set and build ecosystems to encourage high quality research, innovation and entrepreneurship.
  2. Set tone and direction for institutions for future development for making them globally competitive and in forefront of innovation.


Need for such a tool:

For India to emerge as a global innovation hub, the youth of our country, especially in higher education institutions (HEIs) need to play a crucial role to create a sustainable innovation ecosystem. Hence, ideally all HEIs should have a comprehensive and functional mechanism to convert research into innovations.

  • This ecosystem will encourage, inspire and nurture young students by exposing them to new ideas and processes resulting in innovative activities in their formative years.
