As you are aware, Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) had collaborated with the North East Centre for Technology Application and Reach (NECTAR) and Vijnana Bharati (VIBHA) to bring about inclusive development in the Northeast region (NER) of the country, through S&T technologies developed by R&D organizations and accelerating their outreach for fast-tracking livelihood opportunities. In this direction, UBA-NECTAR-VIBHA organized a brainstorming workshop entitled “Transforming Meghalaya State through Science and Technology Interventions” during April 9-10, 2021 at Shillong, Meghalaya with the objective of connecting technology providers with technology seekers in the Northeast region, and ensuring knowledge exchange and cross-learning among different stakeholders. The two day event comprised a techno-fair - a display and demonstration of technologies relevant for implementation in the NER.
In continuation to that, UBA-NECTAR-VIBHA is organizing a Two-days "Brain-Storming Conclave on Atma Nirbhar North East through S&T Interventions" on December 21 - 22 , 2021 at Cotton University, Guwahati, Assam . Unnat Bharat Abhiyan seeks and encourages participation from all its Regional Coordinating Institutes (RCIs) and Participating Institutes (PIs) throughout the country.
For RCIs and PIs, especially those based out of Northeast, we encourage organizing exposure visits to the techno-fair and institutional-level activities/field-studies based on it with a view of inculcating interest and enthusiasm in students towards S&T based rural interventions.
Further, as part of this workshop, UBA-NECTAR-VIBHA are organizing the following competitions on December 22nd , 2021.
