NEW DELHI, OCTOBER 1: The Union Minister for Human Resource Development (HRD)Prakash Javadekar has said that the government’s aim is to produce quality and pure research so that it can add the real contribution to the field of research. The HRD Minister said that high technology research labs are being developed to promote brain gain as innovation in higher education is a key focus to support research within the country.

The MHRD recently organised Conference on Academic Leadership on Education for Resurgence bringing together leading academics from all other the country. Javadekar speaking at the Conference said that research is the necessity of our society and without research, no country can become a developed society.

He said, “Government is promoting research through various schemes like Smart India Hackathon and IMPRINT. He said that under Smart India Hackathon students are doing research on problem statements which are given by government organisations and private industries.”

He emphasized all Vice Chancellors to promote their educational institutions to connect with society. He said that it can be done through various mediums like using social media, Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, Swachh Bharat Internship and Ek Bharat Shreshth Bharat.

Javadekar said that without innovation a nation cannot achieve sustainable growth, so the Ministry of Human Resource Development has taken a number of initiatives like IMPRINT, Smart India Hackathon (SIH), GIAN, SWAYAM and National Digital Library (NDL)to change the structure of the entire education system in this direction.

He also informed that the budget allocation of Rs 1,00,000 crore for Revitalising Infrastructure and Systems in Education (RISE) will also help to step up investment in research and related infrastructure. Government is promoting quality education in identified aspirational districts through RUSA, he added.

Javadekar said that to ensure quality education, the ministry has developed learning outcomes, which will fix accountability on education providers. He also informed that for the overall development of students government has started ‘ Samagra Siksha’ in which government is providing financial assistance to all government schools for library and sports and extended hostel facility for Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya.
