The recent developments for the foreign collaboration in different fields are definitely going to enhance the socio economic parameters of people.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha flagged off a batch of students from SKUAST-K to the USA.
He observed that India’s collaboration with the USA in agriculture & technology goes back several decades. “As the world moves towards a knowledge economy, students from SKUAST will benefit from experience of Kansas University in agriculture extension, farm-to-market linkages, weather & crop forecasting.
While interacting with the group of UG students extended his good wishes for the success of a two month overseas learning program.
He said the National Education Policy-2020 empowers young students to engage not only in advanced research but also in various other fields which facilitate development of new and innovative technologies and their commercial development.
He stressed upon students and faculties to focus on necessary experimental skills and familiarity with the requirements of modern agriculture and allied sectors.
Enquiring about the tie-ups of the University with the other Universities and technical institutions, the Lt Governor impressed upon the Vice-Chancellor of SKUAST-K to explore every opportunity of students and faculty exchange programmes. He impressed upon the faculty members for dedicated focus towards the development of the ecosystem of startups and enterprise in agri-technologies by sensitizing students of agriculture universities.
