República Nepal:

KATHMANDU, April 18: Kathmandu University (KU) and UNICEF signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Thursday in Dhulikhel, which seeks to promote innovation and entrepreneurship among Nepali youths.

According to the MoU, the two institutions will collaborate to pioneer an establishment, ‘Innovation Incubator’, within the premises of KU School of Management in Lalitpur where the best ideas for social changes will be nurtured and then broadcast nationwide through the National Competition on Innovation Solution (NCIS) reality TV show. From there, business leaders and investors interested in the ideas displayed on the show will partner with the innovators to put them into effect. 

The MoU also seeks to provide academic programs on child-sensitive policies and research opportunities on the impact of poverty and inequality in children’s and women’s rights.
