WELCOME TO THE BRIDGE 2017

LAKSHMI NARAYANAN

Chairman, ICT Academy and Vice Chairman, Cognizant

India plays a major role in the rapid change of technology; the developments in various fields of technologies are due to the contribution of both industry and academia of the country. Both industry and institution play a vital role in the development of the nation. The industry and institution are interdependent on each other for new inventions and discoveries to meet the demands of the present problems of the society.

BRIDGE, the flagship conference of ICT Academy helps to enhance better and meaningful interactions between the institution and industry. This would be an important factor in preparing the next generation talent of the nation towards a strong and stable knowledge ecosystem.

BRIDGE conference is the only platform in the country which demonstrates a dynamic convergence of Industry, Academia and Government. This year the BRIDGE conference will focus on FUTURE OF WORK and will discuss on various aspects of skill, Digitalization, Entrepreneurship, Research and be a catalyst to improve the quality of education adequately to meet the needs of the future industry and economy.

I am happy to invite participants from across the state to participate in this largest industry-institute interaction event of India.
