NIAS-DST Training Programme: "Science, Technology and Innovation Policy", JRD Tata Auditorium, NIAS

Monday, August 19, 2019 to Friday, August 30, 2019

The National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) has been organizing with support from the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, training programmes to provide the orientation and planning skills required for scientists/ technocrats of the country, and in particular, to offer views of the broader scientific, economic, social and cultural milieu in which the Indian scientific enterprise could develop in this century. The large pool of scientific and technical manpower in many Indian institutions has not had the benefit of either induction training or a system of regular in-service training that are available to other cadre-based services. In order to bridge this gap, this Programme for scientist-administrators and technologists at the Mid-Level with 9 years and above experience in Group A, from various scientific organizations in the country will focus on the theme Science, Technology and Innovation Policy. The Course will be conducted during August 19-30, 2019. Consistent with the mission of NIAS, its courses emphasize the development of leadership qualities through the integration of multidisciplinary knowledge.


For the training programme the Institute seeks nominations from the Government Organisations only, such as DST, DRDO, DAE, ISRO, ICMR, ICAR, CSIR, DSIR and Central/State Universities. No participation fee is involved for attending this essentially residential programme. Only the travel expenses from Head Quarters to Bengaluru and back are to be met by the nominating organizations as stipulated by DST. Participation in this course is limited to 25 based on a review and selection process as per the guidelines given by DST.
