Vernacular Innovation Program (VIP) is an initiative of the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), NITI Aayog, targeted at decoupling creative expression from the language of transaction in India’s innovation ecosystem.
This program is designed to lower the language barrier for vernacular innovators when learning design thinking and entrepreneurship, accessing markets, attracting investments, and influencing innovation policy. To accomplish this objective a Vernacular Task Force(VTF) in each language has been formed for creating the necessary resources as well as the ecosystem activities.
The VTF Team will learn, contextualize, implement & translate the Design Thinking and entrepreneurship concept in their respective languages. The VTF team shall build, cement and augment design thinking concepts in the scheduled 22 languages. Post that, the ecosystem will be opened up to vernacular innovators with regular ecosystem services.
