India needs educational institutions to develop science culture: President at the 100th edition of Indian Science Congress

Jan 03, 2013

“It is essential to innovate if we have to compete in a globalised economy. India has declared 2010-20 as the decade of innovation. We need an educational system which lays importance on development of a scientific culture within the society. Mere economic growth without the attendant knowledge capacity to manage the dimensions of change would neither suffice nor be appropriate,” said President of India, Pranab Mukherjee while inaugurating the 100th session of Indian Science Congress.

 

“Pursuit of Science as a personal passion cannot be regulated or directed when the thrill of pursuit is in “Knowing the truth of Nature”. Prepared and creative minds are required to observe the revelations of Nature. Science seeks universal and fundamental truth. Culture of Excellence is the second nature of creative scientists. Eminent scientists of the world have always been concerned as to how their understanding of natural phenomena could be applied to solve social problems of the future,” said the President.   

 

“Public and political understanding of science is crucial. For that, I would like to urge upon you all to apply modern tools for communicating science in a manner that can be understood by the common man. This understanding would contribute to the creation of a science culture in the Indian society,” he added.

 

Talking about the STI (Science, Technology and Innovation) Policy 2013, he said, “The announcement of Science, Technology and Innovation Policy today lays the roadmap for the development of an eco system for innovations and for encouraging, recognizing and rewarding the innovators in the society, especially the grass root innovators who through their genius are adding value to the processes which directly impact the local population.”

 

“The new STI policy has also addressed the issue of right-sizing our research and development system. The new STI Policy, I am confident, will pave the technology-led path for change ensuring prosperity with peace and inclusiveness,” the President added.
