Frontend Developer


About the Project:

National Urban Innovation Stack (NUIS) is a program at NIUA, supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). NUIS is envisioned as a shared digital public good that fosters innovation and collaboration in the urban ecosystem, predicated on the empowerment of citizens and enablement of processes to drive solutions at scale and with speed.

The NUIS program is designed to provide the foundational components of this digital infrastructure and to support its adoption. The various platforms that make up the NUIS stack are designed to bring a holistic view across multiple urban verticals and enable rapid scaling of innovative local solutions. The urban governance and municipal services platform, known as Citizen-Centric Smart Governance (CCSG), will be one of the first platforms to be operationalised under NUIS.

Purpose of the assignment:

The National Urban Learning Platform (NULP) is a program at NIUA, supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). NULP is envisioned as a means of digitally consolidating key skills and knowledge required by urban stakeholders and making these available to all actors on the digital channel of their choice. Built on the principles of societal platforms, NULP will include tools to enable and streamline content creation, content organisation and management, course building, course management, assessment and certification. These tools will enable the ecosystem of training institutions, urban experts and academia to rapidly digitise their existing course materials while creating new interactive and engaging types of multilingual content. The NULP program is designed as an eLearning platform which intends to meet the training and development needs of all the stakeholders in the quadruple helix- Governments, Industry partners, Academicians and Civil Societies. NULP aims to propagate solutions and innovations that are underway, and act as an enabler of the rapid development of diverse new solutions developed by cities and states.
