The head of the National Council for Science and Technology Communication Dr Akhilesh Gupta said on Sunday, The national policy on scientific social responsibility will make it mandatory for researchers to popularise science among students.
He said, “We are bringing out a national policy on scientific social responsibility policy. It’s a new idea. The policy is basically to give an opportunity where each scientist and each faculty who receive funds for their projects will have to undertake some social responsibility.”
In this programme, each student can take up writing articles and 100 top articles would be selected for awards.These initiatives have been taken to promote science in the country where there is dearth of researchers.
