The winners of the competition are recognized at CII Karnataka’s annual flagship program – CII India Innovation Summit.

The Awards program has evolved substantially across 8 editions while embracing inclusiveness to ensure that youth across all spheres are eligible to participate. The program runs as an annual challenge inviting participation from across the country and uses a multi-layer evaluation process to identify 6-7 winners across three award categories – Product Innovation, Service Innovation and Rural & Inclusive Innovation.

The work of the winners identified through the YICA program resonates with the results of a global independent study called the State of Science Index, which is conducted by 3M USA every year. The study, which is also conducted in India, explores global attitudes towards science. The results showed that there was an increased enthusiasm for science and a greater recognition that science has an important role to play in solving problems beyond health – such as sustainability and STEM equity gaps.
