It is with great pleasure that we announce the setting up of NewGen IEDC (New Generation Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Center) at University of Kashmir. The Center is sponsored by National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board (NSTEDB), Department of Science & Technology (DST) is set up to channelize the knowledge and the energy of youth towards becoming active partners in the economic development process. The Center will catalyze and promote development of knowledge-based and innovation driven enterprises and promote employment opportunities amongst youth especially students. NewGen IEDC is going to be the main institutional engine in our University that will create frameworks to provide various services including information on all aspects of enterprise building to budding Science & Technology entrepreneurs thereby inculcating a culture of innovation driven entrepreneurship. I wish the coordinating team of NewGen IEDC and its beneficiaries a grand success in this journey.
