The Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), Government of India invites applications for the Accelerate Vigyan Scheme 2021.
“Accelerate Vigyan” (AV) strives to provide a big push to high-end scientific research and prepare scientific manpower which can venture into research careers and a knowledge-based economy. The aim of AV is to expand the research base in the country, with three broad goals-consolidation/ aggregation of all scientific training programs, initiating High-end Orientation Workshops, and creating opportunities for Training and Skill Internships.
The Department of Science and Technology (DST) is a department within the Ministry of Science and Technology in India. It was established in May 1971 to promote new areas of science and technology and to play the role of a nodal department for organizing, coordinating, and promoting Scientific and Technological activities in the country. It gives funds to various approved scientific projects in India.
‘ABHYAAS’, a program of AV scheme, is an attempt to boost Research & Development in the country by enabling and grooming potential PG/ Ph.D. level students by developing dedicated research skills in selected areas/ disciplines/ fields through its two components-High-End Workshops (“KAARYASHALA”) and Training and Skill Internship (“VRITIKA”).
