NCAER-National Data Innovation Centre
The National Data Innovation Centre (NDIC) has been set up by NCAER with its consortium partners, University of Maryland and University of Michigan. India’s rapid transformation has led to a growing demand from researchers and policymakers for high-quality and policy-relevant data. Changing socio-economic conditions also necessitate rethinking of the kind of data that are collected, as also ways in which they are collated and made accessible to users. In this context, NDIC is envisaged as a national centre of innovation and excellence in data collection for building research capacity to strengthen India’s data innovation system to meet 21st century challenges. This flyer provides a glimpse of the data-related innovations and research activities that NDIC plans to undertake as part of its mandate.
