Vice Chancellor’s Innovation Fund Scheme

The NorthCap University has instituted the Vice Chancellor’s Innovation Fund to encourage sharing of innovative ideas and to carry out basic research.

The scheme aims at encouraging innovative ideas amongst research workers, faculty members, and students to seed research activity. Further, to support research, The Master Jaggannath Centre of Excellence & Incubation (MJCEI) at The NCU is established. The funding from the VC Innovation Fund acts as an initial grant to nurture ideas, passion & convert products into startups.
