I take immense pleasure in initiating the ‘Research Scholar’s Website’, developed by the Research and Innovation Affairs Council (RIAC) of SVNIT. It is an effort by our students to provide a platform where the research work being carried out in the institute is available to all. This small step for creating interest in young graduates towards research and innovation will turn into a goal based research journey. I am confident that the diligence and team work of the members will bring a wave of change among the students, making them think and explore original ideas. I am elated that the RIAC is motivating the students of the institute towards considering research as their career.
