Through this initiative, known as the I Squared competition, the NTRC hopes to tap into the students’ creativity by challenging them to develop and present projects in the form of ideas and mobile applications that can implement new or improve existing systems in the current departments within the Public Service of St Vincent and the Grenadines and other state agencies that provide services to the public. Such improvements can lead to cost savings or result in the faster delivery of such service.
