“Creating a better future requires creativity in the present”. We believe that a life without ideas is an unfulfilled existence. Not only having ideas is important, but to express them, share them, and implement them is what makes a difference in this world. Gujarat Power Engineering and Research Institute (GPERI) is organizing a state level technical festival Powerfest - "Actions Cultivate the Intellect" which is scheduled on 7th, 8th and 9th March, 2017. The objective of the Powerfest is to bring the students of various streams from different institutes on common platform to interact and share their innovative ideas, knowledge and to provide information on the different fields of study.
