Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) is being established in Bangalore to address the well-acknowledged and daunting challenges of rapid urbanisation like energy crisis, infrastructure etc. and facilitate appropriate responses and solutions. IIHS aims to establish India’s first independent National Innovation University focussed on the challenges and opportunities of its urbanisation. This will be a privately funded globally-ranked institution for education and action-oriented research at par with the best institutions in the world. IIHS will host an integrated programme of high quality education, research and knowledge generation, executive training, distance learning, design and advisory services, advocacy and intervention.
