The India Innovation Lab (“India Lab” or “IIL”) is a research lab, developed from and associated with the Georgetown University India Initiative, a university-wide initiative that works to strengthen research, outreach, and teaching on India and its role in world affairs.

The India Innovation Lab works to improve the lives of Indian citizens by creating and enabling research-led solutions to policymaking and policy implementation challenges. We believe that one of the best ways to improve the lives of the most vulnerable citizens is to collaborate directly with local leaders and organizations that are working to ensure effective and efficient provision of services, and protection from exploitation and environmental health challenges.

Our Mission

We seek to study, prototype, and implement innovative public policy by taking a deep-dive approach to social issues in India.

We are deeply committed to rigorous academic study and research on Indian politics and contemporary challenges.
