International Innovation Corps

The International Innovation Corps is a program based out of the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy.  Top graduates from UChicago and Indian universities are selected, trained, and split into teams of fellows, which the IIC embeds in government organizations in India. Teams spend one year developing an innovative, scalable solution to a development challenge.  Fellows gain invaluable experience tackling global problems with social impact.

The UChicago Center in Delhi provides some logistical support for the IIC and the fellows.  Several IIC programs have taken place at the Center, including a discussion moderated by Luis Miranda featuring Amitabh Kant and Adil Zainulbhai about the Indian government's Make in India initiative; an IIC information session; and a talk by Chargé d’Affaires, Ambassador Kathleen Stephens.
