Inter-university Innovation and Invention Competition Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka Higher Education Ministry will introduce a novel
concept called "Inter-university Innovation and Invention Competition" to
identify the innovative talents of university students, professionals and the
public to take their inventions to the international market.
The theme of the competition “Solutions, Ideas,
Innovations, Inventions and Products (SIIIP)” would recognise the innovative
talents of students, professionals and the public in the field of information
technology, services, industries, agriculture, power and electrical sectors.
The ultimate goal of this concept is to produce those
of the calibre of Nobel Prize winners, Higher Education Ministry Secretary Dr.
Sunil Jayantha Nawaratne told.
When steps are being taken under the Mahinda Chinthana
to make Sri Lanka the Wonder of Asia, new ideas, innovations and products are
essential to realise that goal.
Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake said that
universities are the ideal platform to launch this novel program to help identify
the series of innovations and inventions of university students, lecturers and
professors. The Ministry has called upon students, professionals and the public
to make an effective contribution for the competition, he said.
Dr. Nawaratne said the Ministry hopes to introduce
this competition next month. Those who produce the best innovations and
inventions will be selected for Presidential Awards at a ceremony to be held
under the patronage of President Mahinda Rajapaksa in March next year. The Ministry
hopes a television channel will make a proposal for the competition.
At present many students and members of the public
have innovative ideas. They have made new inventions, but are unable to market
their products. Therefore, we hope to bring all these innovative talents on to
one platform. We also seek private sector assistance to provide a market for
Those who wish to take part in the competition can
