With this collaboration, the students who have a plan, design, project or a start-up in the waste management sector are targeted.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras by collaborating with University Of Southampton and British Council is organizing the second edition of UK India Social Innovation Challenge 2018. This challenge is being organized to find, fund and support innovative and sustainable solutions that provide efficient ways to manage waste. 

The UK India Social Entrepreneurship Education Network is organizing the event in collaboration by the Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CSIE) of IIT Madras with the Social Impact Laboratory at University of Southampton, Open Innovation Platform Babele and with the support of the British Council.

With this collaboration, the students who have a plan, design, project or a start-up in the waste management sector are targeted.

R Nagarajan, Alumni Community Chair Professor, IIT Madras, said, "Waste management is a great example of a need that a social entrepreneur can fill best. Voluntary efforts can only go so far. I'm delighted to see CSIE enter into this partnership. I'm sure some viable solutions will be forthcoming. Equally importantly, these youngsters will be getting exposure to various facets of social enterprise."
