What do people say about RICH?
I am happy to see the impact RICH aims at by putting research and innovation together. The tripod of talent, technology and trust will take Hyderabad and the nation to its rightful destiny as number one in global innovation.
RICH is an institutional innovation to foster interdisciplinary approach to problem solving. ICRISAT and particularly ihub (ICRISAT’s new ICT4Ag incubator) has had an enriching and deep engagement with RICH. RICH has complemented ihub’s efforts by enabling selected incubatees graduate to the next level.
I am happy to see the growth in the defence sector in Hyderabad over the years. I assure the best support from the Ministry to RICH in the integration of research, industry and academia to support innovation.
