DEF has set high standards for collaborations at all levels starting at the grassroots. Celebrating innovations across India as well as across borders is of great value to take the field forward.

They have a great ability to connect technology to rural people and have a very good understanding of how governments function so they can give very good inputs as to how governments can work with civil society organisations.
