Felicitating innovation and out-of-box thinking in governance
“I dream of a nation, where governance is transparent and corruption-free.”
– Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
Kalam Centre believes that the celebration of success marks the beginning of a new journey. Every successful endeavor has a trail of challenges, struggles, sacrifices and indomitable determination. At our annual summit, we celebrate those who decided to take the road less traveled, provided innovative solutions and utilized their intellectual prowess to solve problems that slow down the common citizen.
Kalam Innovation and Governance Summit is an international summit of policymakers, civil service officers, NGOs, media and academia who are committed to transforming the world with path-breaking ideas. Ironically, the scope of Governance is often reduced to the mandate of the Government. On the contrary, Governance is the outcome of collective efforts, initiatives and actions of a range of contributors from diverse walks of life. KIGA celebrates these contributors!
The Summit also features Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Award for Innovation and Governance to be presented to selected individuals and institutions for their exemplary work in improving governance and delivering value to the citizens.
