The Quint / February 8, 2018
The University of Chicago in the US midwest has tied up with the Karnataka Urban Development Department to clean up state capital Bengaluru's environment, a Minister said on Wednesday."We have launched the Bengaluru Innovation Challenge to improve the city's air and water quality by sourcing inventive ideas from citizens, civic leaders, academics, corporations and other institutions across the country," Bengaluru Development Minister K.J. George told reporters here.
The winners of the challenge would be given up to Rs 1.5 crore over two years to test and implement their ideas, with the support of the state government and the varsity faculty."If successful, these ideas could become the policies that the government can implement, providing a model for other cities to emulate," George said.
