Innovation Platform for Societal Impact (INNOPSI) is a initiative from the C20 official engagement group and its 14 constituent working groups. This is envisaged as a global collaborative platform to encourage grassroots innovation with the active participation of all stakeholders, Civil Society Organizations (CSO), NGOs & public; universities, students, researchers & think-tabs, and startups, investors & organizations. INNOPSI will facilitate a collaborative & multistakeholder ecosystem that encourages various entities to not only share their ideas but collaborate and pool in their resources to develop innovative solutions for addressing the compelling needs of the society. The motto is to facilitate innovation and make it available and affordable so as to make a social impact. INNOPSI will complement the efforts of regional social innovation platforms run by the United Nations and G20 governments and no doubt accelerate the attainment of UN SDGs for nations with the active involvement of all stakeholders especially the civil society. The platform will host hackathons and innovation challenges open for participation from various stakeholders. The ideas and innovations will be supported for technology enablement, mentorship, and/or startup incubation. Top ideas can attract up to Rs 1 crore of funding from Amrita Technology Business Incubator (TBI).


Technology Advancement and Capacity-building Training Initiatives or TACTICS is a comprehensive and free training session for Civil Society Organizations. It is designed to equip members of CSOs with the knowledge and skills needed to protect themselves against cyber threats.

The program aims to increase awareness and understanding of common cyber threats, and provides best practices for securing personal and professional data.

We provide best practices for securing personal and professional data, including password management, network security, and privacy protection. Additionally, we educate civil society members on safe and responsible use of social media and email, and provide strategies for identifying and responding to phishing attacks and other forms of cyber threats.

Our ultimate goal is to enhance the cybersecurity posture of the civil society and mitigate the risks associated with cyber threats. By participating in the program, civil society members can take proactive steps to safeguard their personal and professional data, prevent cyber attacks, and respond to security incidents.

Message from the Chair, C20 India 2023

Our Inspiration

Amma sees the whole world as a flower. Each petal represents a nation. If one petal is infested with pests, it will affect the other petals as well. The beauty of the whole flower suffers. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to protect and nurture this flower. All living beings in creation are interdependent. The rhythm of Nature depends upon humanity. It’s necessary to maintain the rhythm of the mind and body for the sake of our health and lifespan, for the sake of humankind and Nature.
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ❤️
