Organization Mission

National Innovation Foundation-India (NIF) was founded in March 2000 as 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 is committed to look for grassroots innovators who have developed technological innovations in any field of human survival without any outside help. NIF helps them get due reward for their innovations and ensure that such innovations diffuse widely through commercial and non-commercial channels generating incentives for them and others involved in the value chain.
