“IESA Innovation Initiative – leveraging Industry CSR and Best-in-class models from the world – is looking at direct industry intervention at academia-incubator-startup level to enable the Indian IoT hardware ecosystem. We would like to take this to at least another 100 percent growth that it is currently witnessing,” says Ashwini K Aggarwal, Chairman, IESA

The discussions at the summit will revolve around Connected Life and Artificial Intelligence & Analytics. 

During the summit, IESA emphasised its commitment to strengthen the manufacturing capabilities of semiconductors and electronics in India itself. Mr. Aggarwal informed the media that the association has already submitted a memorandum to expand the manufacturing capabilities at Chandigarh based fab-facility to the government.

Mr. Agaarwal, however, accepted that local manufacturing is the top priority for the government and the IESA in order to push the IoT envelope further. To ease out the procurement process of hardware the IESA is continuously engaging various bodies of investment firms and forums.
