|Cyberpark Kozhikode: A self sustaining city set to boom|
A thriving community
Kozhikode’s reputation as a knowledge centre and learning destination is supported by the presence of tertiary educational institutions such as the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), National Institute of Technology (NIT), College of Engineering etc. Mean while the international school Sadhbhavana, which was opened in 2010 will cater for pupils aged 4 to 14.
There are currently over 70 restaurants serving local and international cuisine to the diverse community in Kozhikode, with Paragon, Taj Gateway, Kadavu Resort, Hyson Heritage, seven seas, Dominos, Chik King Square the current favourites among the residential, business and student population.
As further development take shape, the growing population of Cyberpark will fully enjoy Kozhikode as a place to live, study, work and play with the availability of more amenities that befits the international community.
Developing Human Capital
True to its focus on developing the State’s ICT, multimedia and innovation industries, Kozhikode is home to a number of skilled resources which includes an even spread of professional, technical, non technical population. Cyberpark will play a key role in nurturing ICT capability and entrepreneurship among the next generation of Kerala’s ICT talents in collaboration with the major players in the industry.
Knowledge and technology based employers in Cyberpark can send their staff to IIITM, Trivandrum, which will be the Nation’s premiere centre for Post graduate ICT training besides being a venue for seminars and educational activities for working professionals.
In collaboration with School of Business NIT, and IIM, Cyberpark will also hold a “hand holding” service to SME’s in its Resource Support Service Centre which will add value to its SME Technopreneur Centre cluster.
Local graduates from Kozhikode and neighbouring areas will also benefit from Cyberpark’s Graduate Attachment and Training (CGREAT) program, which will help to attract, develop and retain talents as part of the state’s effort to intensify human capital development. Interns will be trained in soft skills, given on the job training and even receive placements from companies operating from the park.
Further the “Talent Pool Database” hosted by the Kerala IT will also serve as a platform for skilled resources and fresh graduate to connect with potential employers from the state and vice versa.
Innovative local platform from global audience
The government has called for collaboration between the public and private sectors to propel the State forward into a high income and developed economy through key strategies such as developing the ICT and creative content industries. In line with the government aspirations, that Kerala IT has created a platform called “Networking with Kerala”, an online portal that will enable service providers from the state to publish their capabilities, to the international community.
This innovative new platform aims to connect the service providers operating from the state to the clients and investors around the globe, thus enabling the growth of local companies while maintaining its marketing and advertising expenses.
Besides being the first IT park in the region, Cyberpark is focused on thinking outside the box and creating an environment for an innovative growth, as Kozhikode has on its doorstep a pool of young talented resources ready to develop and showcase their creativity via Cyberpark.
Supporting the nation’s economic growth
Cyberpark’s vision closely echoes the four major thrusts identified by the national economic advisory council, which is talent development, the creation of research and development eco system, provision of growth infrastructure and institutional development.
Through Kozhikode’s efforts, Cyberpark is practically a microcosm of these aspirations as we nurture entrepreneurship through its holistic ecosystem of multinational corporations and Cyberpark nurtured local knowledge based SME’s, providing a globally competitive ICT infrastructure within a sustainable and liveable cyber city which also functions as a one-stop centre for innovation and creativity in products and services.
