Mysuru based Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-Central Food Technological Research Institute (CSIR-CFTRI) has organised ‘FUTURE INDIA’, it is a series of popular lectures by eminent scientists and technologists for the benefit of students of Mysuru. Beginning in January, the series aimed to educate the next generation technologists and innovators on the achievements of Indian science and technology in various fronts.
The first series of talks is scheduled on 10th January 2020. On the first day of the lecture series Dr Sivanand Kanavi will be speaking on “How Indian’s won the Silicon Valley.” He is an information technology analyst, scientist and journalist. There will be a question answer session where students may ask questions from the subject experts to satiate their curiosity or clarify doubts. “We felt that our city students get little chance of hearing such experts and hence we have begun this initiative.” said Dr. KSMS Raghavarao, Director, CSIR-CFTRI. Dr Raghavarao told that the institute is also open to join hands with other academic institutions for organizing such lectures in future as this would help scale up the effort and reach more students.
“We felt that our city students get little chance of hearing such experts and hence we have begun this initiative.”
