NIAS-DST Training Programme: Policy for Science and Science for Policies
NIAS-DST Training Programme
For Directors/Divisional Heads/Chief Scientists/Senior Scientists
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 which is now seventh in the series for scientist-administrators and technologists at the Directors/Divisional Heads/Chief Scientists/Senior Scientists position (with at least 20 years’ experience)from various scientific organizations in the country will focus on the theme ‘Policy for Science and Science for Policies’. The Programme will be conducted duringOctober 21 to 25, 2019. Consistent with the mission of NIAS, its programmes emphasize the development of leadership qualities through the integration of multidisciplinary knowledge.
