Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution India

Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, India was announced on January 23, 2018 at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos and officially launched in India on October 11, 2018.

It is developed in partnership with the Government of India through the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog.

Located in Mumbai, it serves as a platform for technology governance in the Indian context. It acts as a trusted space for local and foreign policy-makers, business leaders, technology experts and other stakeholders to exchange insights on the latest technological trends and applications.

We work on pilot projects to accelerate the adoption of new technologies in India, minimize their negative effects on the society, and ensure inclusive and equitable distribution of their benefits.

From ‘local solution’ to ‘global application’…the new Centre will strengthen this process. As the work progresses, one of the targets is ‘Solve for India, Solve for the World’
