National Innovation Foundation

Overview

The National Innovation Foundation (NIF) – India, is India's national initiative to strengthen the grassroots technological innovations and outstanding traditional knowledge. Its mission is to help India become a creative and knowledge-based society by expanding policy and institutional space for grassroots technological innovators.

NIF scouts, supports, and spawns grassroots innovations developed by individuals and local communities in any technological field, helping in human survival without any help from the formal sector. It also tries to ensure that such innovations diffuse widely through commercial and/or non-commercial channels, generating material or non-material incentives for them and others involved in the value chain.
