accelerate entrepreneurship and start-up ecosystem development in CPS,
give impetus to advanced research in CPS, Technology development and higher education in Science, Technology and Engineering disciplines, and
place India at par with other advanced countries and derive several direct and indirect benefits.
The NM-ICPS is a comprehensive Mission which would address technology development, application development, human resource development & skill enhancement, entrepreneurship and start-up development in CPS and associated technologies
The Mission aims at establishment of 15 numbers of Technology Innovation Hubs (TIH), six numbers of Application Innovation Hubs (AIH) and four numbers of Technology Translation Research Parks (TTRP).
These Hubs & TTRPs will connect to Academics, Industry, Central Ministries and State Government in developing solutions at reputed academic, R&D and other organizations across the country in a hub and spoke model.
The Hubs & TTRPs have four focused areas along which the Mission implementation would proceed, namely
CPS technologies provide a cutting edge to a Nation’s scientific, engineering, and technological innovative capabilities; support other missions of the government, provide industrial and economic competitiveness and have truly became a Strategic Resource.
Volume, scale and complexity of emerging applications demand continued evolution of new technologies for the foreseeable future.
The proposed Mission would act as an engine of growth that would benefit national initiatives in health, education, energy, environment, agriculture, strategic cum security, and industrial sectors, Industry 4.0, SMART Cities, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) etc.
Accordingly, it is estimated that, about 40,000 jobs will be created in the short term and about 2,00,000 in long term.
