IMPRINT: Road map for research

Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the IMPRINT India brochure at
the Visitors’ Conference at Rashtrapati Bhavan. ‘IMPRINT India’ is a
Pan-IIT and IISc joint initiative to develop a roadmap for research to
solve major engineering and technology challenges in 10 technology
domains. PM stressed the importance of innovation and technology for
the progress and development of the nation. Intutions of higher
education should give primacy to innovation in learning and finding
solutions to challenges – global warming and converting waste to
wealth, were key to rise of India. He exhorted institutions of higher
learning to focus on defence manufacturing. “Science is universal but
technology must be local,” the PM said and called for enhanced
industry-academia partnerships. Modi praised the President as an ocean
of knowledge and appreciated his initiatives towards higher education.
