An innovation platform where young engineers can showcase their creativity and succeed. That’s better.

For those who have the passion and creativity to engineer a better world, Tata Technologies InnoVent provides the training and mentorship needed to innovate solutions addressing the biggest challenges in the manufacturing industry. Our hackathon aims to ignite the passion for innovation among engineering students, foster collaboration, and provide a platform where they can showcase their talent.

Through the Tata Technologies InnoVent program, engineering students have a unique opportunity to tackle real-world challenges across the product value chain using Generative AI. This initiative, in collaboration with Microsoft and Tata Motors, equips shortlisted project teams with cutting-edge innovation tools and access to Generative AI use cases and technologies. We aim to empower young minds to innovate, design, and engineer next-generation product engineering, product manufacturing, and digital transformation solutions. Top-performing teams will receive mentorship and guidance from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from Tata Technologies, Tata Motors, and the Microsoft Azure community. These experts will help shape the projects for scalability and impact, ensuring that the innovations are practical and transformative.

Together, we will shape the future of technology and engineer a better world. Register your project at Tata Technologies InnoVent now and be a part of this exciting journey. Learn more about the rules and regulations here.​


Leveraging Generative AI to innovate solutions across the product value chain

Generative AI is set to transform manufacturing by enhancing product design, engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, and after-sales. We’re excited to collaborate with Microsoft and Tata Motors to offer engineering students a platform to develop generative AI solutions for the manufacturing industry. Tata Technologies will oversee the program’s planning and execution. Microsoft will provide top teams with access to Azure sandbox environment and mentorship from the Azure community. Tata Motors will support mentoring and implementation of top projects. Learn more about our collaboration here.

Key stages​

Our 3-stage project selection process comprises a detailed evaluation of the project concept according to the evaluation criteria, plagiarism checks, and assessment by SMEs, leading to the selection of the top 3 winning teams.​​

Stage 1 – Project registration

Teams need to register by submitting their project application form. Once the application form passes a plagiarism check, a panel of experts will review all submissions and shortlist the promising projects.​

Stage 2 – Virtual POC presentation

The shortlisted teams will present a technical presentation and virtual Proof Of Concept / Prototype on their project to a panel of SMEs. The top teams from this pool will then advance to the final demo round.​

Stage 3 – Final demo day

The top shortlisted teams will demonstrate their Proof Of Concept / Prototype to our jury panel in a physical event followed by a Q&A session. The top teams will be identified as winners.​​
