Former President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam on 9 July 2015 launched the Rashtriya Avishkar Abhiyan (RAA) in New Delhi. The abhiyan aims to inculcate a spirit of inquiry, creativity and love for Science and Mathematics in school children.

Rashtriya Avishkar Abhiyan is a concept developed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Under Rashtriya Avishkar Abhiyan, government schools will be mentored by Institutes like IITs/IIMs/IISERs and other Central Universities and reputed organisations through innovative programmes, student exchanges, demonstrations, student visits, etc to develop a natural sense of passion towards learning of Science and Maths.

Besides, the Union Minister for Human Resource Development Smriti Irani announced that Phase II of RAA will be launched in January 2016 for higher education under which model science labs will be established in all districts of the North Eastern States.
