Prez gets global leader award for open innovation

President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday presented the Garwood Award for ‘Outstanding Global Leader in Open Innovation’ by the UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business, California, at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

He stressed on the need to have increased ‘open’ innovation in government to serve citizens better. “Open innovation is a way to future as it captures knowledge-flow from all sources, both internal and external, in an organisation,” he said. “Placing of data in public domain without compromising on privacy, promotes transparency, innovation and opens up new avenues to solve problems of citizens efficiently and effectively,” the President said.
