“Your ideas and innovations can be a force multiplier in these challenging times of coronavirus pandemic. I urge you all to come forward and help us combat coronavirus by participating in Samadhan Challenge. Together we can and we will make the difference,” HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank posted on Twitter on April 7.

Basically, this “mega online challenge” named SAMADHAN is categorized into two parts:

Track 1: Ideate-Simulate-Win

It is basically a process of imitating of ideas. Innovation cell of MHRD invites all the student innovators, educators, researchers, and startups to share their ideas in a form of YouTube video link, which should ideally be a solution against the COVID-19 pandemic that the whole world is facing.

Track 2: Validate-Pitch-Deploy

It invites student innovators, educators, researchers, and startups with a working prototype of technologically advanced solutions, which can be validated and implemented immediately to weaken the effect of pandemic COVID-19.

It is the recommendation of Innovation Cell from all the participants to share a tweet once they submit their idea.

Where to apply ??

To apply for this challenge, visit the official website of MHRD’s Innovation Cell and choose the category you want to participate in, either Track 1 or Track 2.

We all know that coronavirus does not have a quick solution, therefore, the Government of India has taken this initiative “SAMADHAN” to call all the young minds where they will search and develop such measures that can be made available to the health services, hospitals, government agencies, and other services for quick solutions to the Coronavirus epidemic and other such calamities.Also the motive behind this challenge is to make citizens aware, to motivate them, to face any challenge even in this pandemic situation.

Under this challenge, the students and faculty will get something new to discover and experiment which could be helpful for all the citizens and it will also provide them with a strong base leading to a spirit of experimentation and discovery.

No doubt, the success of this programme totally depends on how effective are the ideas of participants with their ability to find solutions, commercially and technically, which in turn will help the country to fight with this epidemic disease COVID-19.
