Maker Village, an electronic hardware incubator at Kalamassery, has been tasked with developing affordable technological solutions for agriculture and ways to combat air pollution, under a Central government programme.

Maker Village has been selected under SPARSH (Social Innovation Programme for Products: Affordable and Relevant to Societal Health), which is a scheme piloted by the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council, under the Union government’s Department of Biotechnology.
