KPIT has opened registrations for the fifth edition of Sparkle, which is inviting innovative solutions from participants on the theme of ‘Mobility and Energy for the Future.’ KPIT Sparkle 2019 will continue to be organised in partnership with the Government of India’s Department of Science and Technology (DST), along with NITI Aayog’s Atal Innovation Mission (AIM). The contest will be conducted in four phases, with registration and idea submission or evaluation taking place up to September, 2018, followed by prototyping and video submission up to November, 2018. The selection for the finale will take place from November-December, 2018, with the concluding phase being the Grand Finale at Pune in February, 2019.

Students can submit their ideas on energy generation from alternate sources, as well as clean, safe, shared, secured, connected or user-convenient mobility, but are not limited to these ideas alone. Participants shortlisted from the pre-qualification stage will be invited to build and present working prototypes of their solutions at the grand finale and public exhibition in Pune, in February, 2019.

Ravi Pandit, Co-founder, Chairman and Group CEO, KPIT, said Sparkle is establishing new benchmarks in innovation with every passing year. With this edition, KPIT will take Sparkle a notch higher along with DST and AIM-NITI Aayog by providing opportunities for up-and-coming innovators to access incubation centres and convert their ideas into viable products, he added.
