As the founder Director of Cluster Innovation Center, I played pivotal role in establishment of this new Center at University of Delhi. The center has created an ecosystem for bridging academia, Industry and societal linkages, where education is imparted through problem-solving of real-life problems. The center is the first one to create an education system on the concepts of Meta-University with Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, and Meta-College concepts. A Business Incubator with the help of Ministry of MSME, and a Design Innovation Center funded by MHRD have also been established for the first time in the University.
