IndiaBioscience Outreach Grants (IOG)

The IndiaBioscience Outreach Grants were initiated to motivate young researchers to step out of their labs and build stronger connections with the broader public through innovative science outreach efforts.


Outreach and science communication is a responsibility that scientists across career stages and disciplines have towards society. In the current times and moving forward it will be very important to cultivate a deeper level of interaction between the scientific community and the broader public via strategies such as sharing scientifically reliable information, fostering a scientific temperament, and increasing the accessibility of the scientific community/​research. Despite the pertinence of this issue such initiatives are few, in their infancy, or face a shortage of resources. IndiaBioscience strives to promote this practice, especially amongst talented scientists in the early stages of their careers via the IndiaBioscience Outreach Grants (IOG).
