IIM-Kozhikode launches new centre for interdisciplinary research in emerging tech

A Centre for Digital Innovation and Transformation (CDiT), which promotes and coordinates interdisciplinary research in emerging digital technologies, has been opened at the IIM Kozhikode here.

Co-founder of Infosys Kris Gopalakrishnan was the chief guest for the virtual inaugural function here on Wednesday, a statement said here. In his inaugural address, Gopalakrishnan congratulated IIM Kozhikode for this initiative and expressed hope that the industry becomes an active participant in the activities of this centre because it is at the intersection of academic and industry activity.

He also encouraged the centre to strive for excellence to come up with sustainable business ideas, create better products through core research activities that are for the betterment of lives and society.

He laid out seven significant milestones for the centre and remarked “the growth model of this century will be founded on innovation and not on consumption. India will lead the world in innovation in the 21st century and this is bound to be India’s century.”

Director IIM Kozhikode & Patron of the Centre, Debashis Chatterjee appreciated the effort of the team which put together this centre and said IIMK’s mission to go global will receive a massive boost with this initiative about bringing digital transformation.

“Sustainability should be at the core of all transformation and the world today is moving from consumption to innovation and from producing to caring,” he said.

The sheer scale, scope and potential impact that India will have on 21st-century business make IIMK’s Vision 2047 of Globalizing Indian thought a worthwhile aspiration, he added.

At an age and time when the government initiatives like Digital India are transforming the society, IIM Kozhikode’s Centre for Digital Innovation and Transformation will promote and coordinate interdisciplinary research in emerging digital technologies, added Prof. R Radhakrishna Pillai, Head CDiT.
