Foundation Day Celebration

The seventh Foundation Day of IISER Mohali was celebrated on September 27, 2012 in the lecture hall. The foundation day lecture was given by Dr. T. Ramasami (DST). Speaking on Expanding excellence in science education and research, Dr. Ramasami discussed the various initiatives and schemes that are leading to a transformation in the contribution of universities and colleges to research in sciences. By using a distributed approach where allocation of funds is not limited to a small number of institutes or departments, these schemes have led to growth in all parts of the country. Dr. Ramasami also discussed some new schemes that are being considered. The lecture was followed by interaction with students and faculty members at the institute.
