PROF. (DR.) D. T. Shirke
Hon'ble Vice Chancellor


It gives me an immense pleasure to welcome you all at the “Shivaji University Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Linkages (SCIIL).” As a part of SUK’s commitment towards carving Innovation Ecosystem, an incubation Centre ‘SCIIL’ has been established. The vision of SCIIL is to “promote and realize product oriented innovative and executable ideas and concepts from student’s faculties and members of the society with a focus on enhancing the quality of life through entrepreneurship development and help them to realize the idea into product, processes or services for the benefits of society as well as industry.” 
The SCIIL is funded by Maharashtra State Innovation Society (MSInS), which is a nodal government agency to boost innovation-driven entrepreneurial ecosystem in the state of Maharashtra established under Department of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. It is committed to create an engaged atmosphere where start-ups can successfully plan, launch and grow their businesses from conception, enabling them to simultaneously extend into the market and establish brand name by following ethical practices. SCIIL will assist students in discovering their hidden potential by investigating and experimenting with their ideas in order to set up new enterprises that will market their creative products and services.  
With the successful inception of SCIIL, Shivaji University has established SUK Research and Development Foundation (SUKRDF) a Section-8 company has been registered as per company Act-2013 with Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India. This multi-facility established will bring incubators, accelerators, investors, mentors and industry representatives/stakeholders under one roof. Shivaji University, through SCIIL, will also contribute to regional and national socioeconomic growth by assisting stakeholders in establishing entrepreneurial ventures.
I hope that the facility established by Shivaji University will definitely build a strong entrepreneurship ecosystem by nurturing innovation and creativity in stakeholders for sustainable economic growth as well as job creation opportunities. I express my best wishes to Innovators and Incubators.
