Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Startup Mission is reaching out to universities, seeking innovative ideas that are commercially viable. The Mission would also provide financial assistance to implement these.

A visit to the Kerala University's Business Innovation And Incubation Centre helped the Mission realise that concepts in students' research papers could be implemented. At least 15 innovative ideas were identified here.

Kerala is ranked eighth on the India Innovation Index, while Karnataka tops the list. The aim is to raise Kerala's position. A team of experts led by Startup Mission CEO Anoop B Ambika is visiting the universities.

Some of the impressive ideas from the Kerala University are: bandages to heal the wounds of diabetic patients, bio-spray to kill pests in paddy fields, and a 3D printer. College students, individuals and groups can get grants from the Startup Mission if they can come up with such ideas.
