Tech4Bharat

PanIIT Alumni India (PIAI) has conceived Tech4Bharat as a strategic event to review and realign the current initiatives and launch fresh ones.

The event will feature engaging panel discussions bringing Academia, Policy makers and the Industry leaders. The expert panel moderators from PanIIT will lead the discussions to gather the diverse views and galvanize them into a common pursuit of excellence for our fine institutions of technical education.

The key feature of Tech4Bharat is the launch of a IIT Directors Forum attended by the Directors of majority of the 23 IITs. A workshop attended by the members and moderated by Padma Shri BVR Mohan Reddy will deliberate the collaboration between the Forum, PanIIT Alumni and the industry to render feedback to the policy makers and provide execution support. The Forum members will be present at the plenary for networking.

The Solve4Bharat 24 hour Hackathon will provide an opportunity to the talented teams from all across the country to showcase their skills in applying technology to solve the day-to-day public issues in Healthcare, Education and Mass Transportation.

Join us in this thought provoking event to participate, network and contribute to the nation building.

About PanIIT Alumni India

PanIIT is an association / confederation of IIT Alumni Associations and of IIT Alumni. PanIIT was formed to build the brand IIT, and take on work that was nationally relevant.

Since its formation, PanIIT has identified the projects that it takes on through the PanIIT Conclave, a bi-annual event, where a topic of national interest and impact is taken up, discussed, opinions taken from external experts from the domain, industry, society and government. Thereafter, the proceeds are analysed to draw out actionables in the form of an Outcome Report of the Conclave, and submitted to the Ministry of HRD, and from which PanIIT takes up one or two as their own initiatives.

Some of the notable initiatives are undertaken under the Reach for India initiative of PanIIT (PARFI). PARFI has been involved in vocational skill building in various states in conjunction with the state and placing the trained people with organisations in a demand-supply model.
