Mission समूहन (Bring Together)

Mission ‘SAMOOHAN’ marks the beginning of Accelerate Vigyan. It aims to encourage, aggregate and consolidate all scientific interactions in the country under one common roof. This mission, through its wide knowledge base caters to a varied audience - R&D Departments, Institutes in Science & Technology as well as stakeholders - Mentors, Coordinators, Participants and Students. This Mission will be achieved through two of its subcomponents/schemes, namely ‘SANGOSHTHI’ (existing Seminar & Symposia scheme of SERB) and ‘SAYONJIKA’ (aggregation of all the major capacity building activities of all science departments/ministries). These two subcomponents/programs are explained in the succeeding paragraphs.

This program aims to encourage ‘event organizers’ to register with Accelerate Vigyan online portal, to utilize its logo and submit completion report and outcomes. The information base aggregated through this initiative will benefit the students, teachers, researchers, science administrators and policymakers, in participating, conducting and planning future capacity building activities and have a repository of the skilled manpower in various scientific fields.

संगोष्ठी (Seminar & Symposia)

‘SANGOSHTHI’ is designed to facilitate the scientific community to establish an interaction with other individuals and research groups to enhance knowledge exchange. It is to keep them abreast of the latest developments in Science & Technology by supporting participation in national and international events across the country. This is done by providing partial financial support to hold conferences, seminars, symposia, technical meetings and short-term training programs / workshops.
