Dr. Pradeep P. Thevannoor Innovation Talks 2020

Dr. Pradeep P. Thevannoor Innovation Awards (PPTIA) instituted in year 2015 by SCMS School of Engineering and Technology, Kerala, India is a global event held annually with an aim to identify, recognize and celebrate innovative ideas and applications to tackle issues and challenges faced by society. This event is held every year as a tribute to Dr. Pradeep P Thevannoor - Former Vice Chairman , SCMS Group , the key person in ably leading several notable achievements of SCMS in the field of Research and Development till 17 November 2014.

Over the past 5 years, PPTIA has witnessed a steady growth in both number and quality of ideas. These ideas represent the ingenuity, passion and technological knowledge of the student community. With an overwhelming influx of 100s of ideas every year the competition is conducted in the School and College Categories. Students from all over the globe are invited to participate with creative and out-of-the-box solutions to everyday problems. Each year the best ideas are selected by a panel of experts from industry and academia and are given due recognition. Every year PPTIA provided a platform to young minds to showcase their ideas and win prize money worth 5 lakhs in various categories . While it is a platform for student innovators to present their ideas, PPTIA also provides an opportunity for students to take forward their innovations to an implementation level under the mentorship of industry leaders. We welcome you all to this technical extravaganza for a chance to interact with top innovators in God’s own country. The competition is organised in association with Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam University (KTU) with technical support from Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Cell (IEDC) of SCMS School of Engineering and Technology (SSET), Karukutty, Ernakulam, Kerala, KSIDC, Kerala StartUp Mission and ICT Academy.

This year due to the prevailing Covid19 Pandemic situation we are unable to invite clear and fresh innovative ideas to campus and thus the format of the prestigious annual event is changed and is being called Dr. Pradeep P Thevannoor Innovation Talks 2020 .
