Research & Innovation at Lingaya's Vidyapeeth

The world currently is amidst of knowledge economy. In the knowledge economy knowledge is of primary importance in contrast to natural resources, physical, capital and labour force in creating tangible and intangible value to the society.

Knowledge work requires non-routine problem solving approach with a combination of convergent, divergent and creative thinking. Knowledge workers with their education and background earn their living by thinking.

In the knowledge economy, Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) are very important components in creating the wealth and ensure the high growth path. This is more so in the present day environment where new and innovative products and solutions are introduced in the market place every day replacing the earlier products very fast-one striking examples being the mobile phones. The major requirement is the knowledge workers with innovative skills and conductive environment. It is our role and responsibility to appropriately impart skills with high knowledge component and innovative skills to meet challenges of knowledge economy.

Lingaya's Vidyapeeth has conceived a pragmatic and focused approach for Research, Development and Innovation.
