About CITI

Centre for Innovation and Technology Incubation (CITI) at IIITM-K has been set up to promote innovation and entrepreneurship by converting and translating innovative and creative ideas of young minds in various disciplines of science and engineering to achieve excellence in research, products, processes and services to maximize its impact on industry and society. To accomplish its goal, CITI would facilitate incubation of new enterprises with innovative technologies by providing seed support with financial, physical, technical and infrastructure level. This will also bring an industry-academia convergence for bridging the skill gap in order to address the real needs of the industry and academia.
