MCC – MRF Innovation Park

About Us

The MCC – MRF Innovation Park, established in Madras Christian College and funded by MRF Limited, is an ecosystem dedicated to fostering advanced research and innovative start-ups and nurturing entrepreneurs. The innovation park is to work in collaboration with different units in MCC, such as MCC Farm, Artisan and Heritage Village, Centre for Teaching and Learning, Centre for Data Analytics, Centre for Media Production, etc., to create the right ambience for the generation of innovative ideas and to enable start-ups. The infrastructure for the innovation park spreads across 45000 sq ft.

Why Innovation Park

Higher education institutions across the world and higher education agencies in India, such as UGC, AICTE, etc., have begun to focus on Innovation and entrepreneurship as a scale to measure successful academic performance and employability. Also, the whole human race is going through natural and human-induced disasters such as depletion of natural resources, endangered biodiversity, and contagious diseases, of which covid 19 is the closest stark reality. Alternative responses to these existing conditions are required from the academia towards advanced research placement, Innovation, and entrepreneurship as conventional methods which were viable a decade ago have taken a secondary position.

In response to these demands, MCC attempts to provide opportunities and resources, physical and intellectual, eco-friendly, and sustainable for the origin, development and fruition of innovative ideas from a wide range of stakeholders.

The College also intends to create a platform for developing new internships and employment opportunities. The Madras Christian College keeps its philosophy of social relevance in full view in all these ventures.
