As a nodal center, you will be acting as a central point of contact for the hackathon especially for student teams participating in the grand finale.

What all facilities and manpower is needed for SIH 2020 Virtual Edition?

Nodal Centre needs to add at least 20 manpower for its social media coordination, student coordination, media coordination, and volunteers. Along with this, a separate and integrated video conferencing system is needed to connect with students and vice versa including evaluators, dignitaries, and judges.

We don't have enough manpower to handle information technology tasks. What should we do?

If the Center is lacking manpower then it is suggested that you should approach other colleges or freelancers to get enrolled for hackathon events. This will reduce the workload of arranging manpower at your end.

Are we going to get training for the process of SIH 2020?

Yes, the Innovation Cell along with Innovatio Curis will conduct training sessions for all manpower, judges and Juries in five different slots. Nodal centres are requested to pass this information to all manpower related to the execution and operation of SIH.
