Through this research project, NIT Rourkela aims to make a significant contribution in reducing poverty in that region.

The MoU was signed during the diamond jubilee celebrations of the institute.

"Institutes like NIT Rourkela plays a significant role in India's call for 'Vocal for Local', and 'Local for Global'. I appeal to the students to aim to create jobs rather than seeking jobs. I believe this institution is doing wonders, with the help of FTBI (Foundation for Technology & Business Incubation)," Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' said at the virtual event.
