    An online platform where students from different departments can come and collaborate to do practical and self-motivated projects, with adequate involvement of industry and university academia.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Most projects are just dumped off after grading and no such platform exists to make them accessible for the successors. Practical problem-oriented projects require the participation of students from diverse fields which is nearly impossible due to lack of inter-departmental/university collaboration.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Students need it unknowingly. The interactive repository will not only give them a pool of thoughts and existing ideas to work on, promoting innovation, but also allow them to collaborate with students from other disciplines and possibly with industry. Target audience: all university students.
How will the solution works
    We will establish an online website with an articulate database in the back end, maintaining a systematic arrangement of projects, start-ups, and other initiatives by the students and their stories. Every university will have its portal integrated with its CMS/LMS under certain SOPs and privacy policy, making it easily accessible* for students. This integrated system will centralize all the data, with the university having administrative control, while automating the process.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    We have not found any such initiative at the national level however some universities abroad have initiated at a very limited scale.Online services like Github, Google Scholars are totally different since they do not formally organize a university
