Hitachi developed an analytical technique to capture multiple characteristics from the waveforms measured from the finger-tapping movement of both hands, and provided NCGG with the software.
NCGG and Hitachi intend to collect and analyze a greater sample of data on finger-tapping movement to further validate the effectiveness of this assessment method with the aim of establishing a simple screening test for the early detection of Alzheimer's-type dementia.
The focus of NCGG is to analyse policy and programme implementation, developing synergies across various sectors, ministries/departments and providing necessary direction and support to Central and State Government organisations and Training Institutes.
To deliberate and develop its mandate and prepare a roadmap for its future initiatives, NCGG organised a one-day National Stakeholders Consultation in December 2014.
NCGG organised the first National Workshop on Citizen Centric Governance on September 12, 2015 in association with Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Government of India and The Institute for Development and Communication (IDC), Chandigarh.
After extensive discussions with large number of stakeholders, Government has set up National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) by upgrading National Institute of Administrative Research (NIAR), Mussorrie and renaming it as NCGG with an expanded mandate.
The NCGG would work towards resolution of key issues in Governance, analyse policy and programme implementation, develop action plans, support governance reforms and help in developing synergy across various sectors and Ministries/Departments.
