V17H2: Societal aspect of Technology Development with cause

Assistive Technology, Disability and Ageing

Assistive Technology is now changing the society, particularly for the people with disabilities or the people with especial abilities. AI and new equipment are providing people access to knowledge and education. Also, the use of prosthetics and artificial limbs are enhancing human conditions as never before.

Technology to address Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Technology has great potential to help deliver the SDGs and might be essential to harness digital technology to reach the goals.

Technology based on indigenous knowledge

Technology has also enhanced the democratization of knowledge, which was earlier not possible in such a grand way; it has also given us access to the various indigenous knowledge system as well as its restoration and preservation. 

Nurturing Community Innovations

Community centric innovation must search for intelligent solutions to tackle major social issues and pursue strategies to remove barriers to the smart future. The ecosystem of innovation includes a diverse array of community participants and resources that contribute to, and are necessary for fostering innovation in the areas of health promotion and disease prevention, welfare reform and mental health service delivery.


V17H3: Community-centric developmental approaches and their impact

Digital & Print Media, and Content Creation in Media 2.0

In the present socio-economic development scenario digital and print media is playing pivotal role in building the culture of society. In building Media 2.0, the digital and print media are required to be cautioned from fabricated/fake content creation. Time to delve on the subject to build the strong and self-reliant media culture with dignity and pride.

Digital Learning Technologies and Content Designing for Online Education

Pandemic outbreak has taught world the power of digital technology in learning. The dawn has just started for online education wherein this change requires brainstorming on content creation and curriculum design. The National Education Policy (NEP) has further catalysed this change.

Urban planning with a focus on socially deprived groups

This appears to be the right time to ensure equality in offering better and improved livelihood offering urban facilities with a focus of development for socially deprived groups.

Refurbishing Rural Planning-Techniques, Facilities, and Processes

People have started migrating towards their native villages. Rural planning having focus on economic development through improved techniques, facilities, and processes will certainly benefit building an ecosystem through facilities similar to urban.


V17H4: Community health & Preventive care  

Swachchha Bharat-Swastha Bharat:

The Swachh Bharat Mission was launched as a multi-pronged approach to enhance the level of sanitation and inculcate the behavioural change in the communities. The goals of this drive further need a focus on achieving Swastha Bharat for broader economic development objectives and founding an Atmanirbhar Bharat through preventive healthcare.

Yoga and AYUSH adaptation for preventive care:

The Indian System of Medicine is of great antiquity for comprehensive health and prevention care as it is the culmination of Indian thought of medicine and unique cultural history of Ayurveda, Siddha, Yoga & Naturopathy.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled distributed healthcare:

From diagnosis to treatment, AI is at work increasing efficiency, reducing costs and errors, and facilitating the access for more patients to receive the health care they need.

Reproductive health and access to specialised health services:

Increased access to good quality primary health care, including reproductive health, is critical for attainment of the development goals of the country.
