RESEARCH AND FUTURE
There is a lot of focus on the research in the technical institutes and the government of Jammu and Kashmir is very keen to promote the research so that there is a better future for the students and for the people.
Recently Lt Governor Manoj Sinha while laying the foundation stone for the mega hostel at NIT Srinagar asked the technical institutions to focus on strengthening Academia-Industry collaboration which is crucial for research, innovation and building human capital for economic growth. Technical Institutes must experiment with new technologies for the benefit of society.
Emerging technologies are also a basic need of civilized society. Without new inventions, a developed society cannot be conceived.
The modern era engineering technologies are making the world more connected and transforming lives of people living in far-flung areas. Today’s fantasy could be tomorrow’s invention. Even a small invention in the lab can make a big difference to the world. That’s why it is important to promote scientific temper among students.
Terming youth power as the biggest asset for any region, he said that the potential of the young generation needs to be properly channelized for development.
He also underlined the need for encouraging innovations and inventions as recommended by the new National Educational Policy.
