A report from a workshop on Science & Technology policy for women scientists held at IISER Pune in April 2016.
The IMPRINT India Initiative seeks to identify and define a research roadmap towards solving engineering challenges that address societal needs and spur technological innovation.
Couples in academia are a rising trend, one that academic institutions simply cannot ignore. Harini Barath speaks to six couples from different Institutes in India about the extra constraints and challenges they battle when looking for jobs, and how Universities and Institutes can help. The conversations reveal a pressing need for discussion and clarity in policy.
Universities/India must act now to reverse a long trend towards obsolescence, as the rest of the world races forward with its educational systems. The IISERs are a bright addition and already successful, but are insufficient in scope and represent a typical trend of building anew instead of solving problems lingering from the past.
