Innovasia is a 24-Hour National level Hackathon organized by Vasavi College of Engineering. 

The hackathon has 2 rounds. All the participants will have to submit the idea by 24th November 2022 by 6:00 PM IST. Based on the ideas submitted,  top teams will be selected and will be invited to Vasavi College of Engineering for Round 2. The second round will commence on 2nd December 2022 at 7:00 AM IST for all the shortlisted teams in online mode followed by an offline mode hackathon on 3rd December 2022 from 7:00 AM IST. Lunch and snacks for all the shortlisted teams will be provided at the Venue on 3rd December 2022. This hackathon focuses on the top 3 pressing problems of our nation.

The problem statements for INNOVASIA 2022 are:
  • Education: Come up with Smart assessment systems to evaluate students and identify the learning gaps well. The traditional evaluation systems fail to cater to the growing nuances and cannot give a complete understanding of the student and their learning abilities. The participants should come up with adaptive tests and smart assessment systems designed to understand the level of learning and retention of the students and are personalized to the student's grasping capabilities. Ultimately the goal of the solution should be to help both teacher and student in their learning journey.
  • Health: Come up with innovative applications to make subsidized healthcare transparent and efficient. The government started many initiatives to subsidize health care and medication to make them affordable and accessible to marginalized communities. But, the target audience for the subsidies is either not very tech-savvy or is not very educated to realize the importance of documentation.
  • AgriTech - Come up with innovative solutions to impact the agriculture industry by leveraging any applicable technologies. Agriculture is the backbone of any growing economy and so is India. But, there is so much innovation that can be done in every process of the supply chain. We expect the participants to come up with innovative solutions that leverage various technologies and optimize agriculture.
