Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham  organized a national workshop on the ‘Role of Universities in Empowering Indian Villages’ on the university campus at Coimbatore from September 21-23, 2016. Over 100 experts attended the event, which began with a tree plantation drive in which 150 trees were planted by nearly 100 students and staff of the university.

The workshop was inaugurated by renowned Robotics Expert, Dr. Prahlad Vadakkepat, Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore. In his inaugural talk Dr. Prahlad said, "Academicians and researchers have a big social responsibility to the common man and people at the bottom of the pyramid. Most of the research done by them ends up in publications in journals and conferences. More than 90 percent of this knowledge is wasted and not utilized for the betterment of society. In this context, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is breaking barriers with its unique focus on technology for societal and humanitarian benefit."
