The Sponsored Research and Industrial Consultancy, Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh, today, organised an interactive session on “Various Research Funding Schemes of DST and How to Write Research Project Proposals” for the faculty members of PEC with an aim to promote quality research. The eminent speaker of the session was Dr. Sandeep Bansal, Scientist C, INSPIRE-MANAK DIVISION, Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi. Dr. Sandeep Bansal, completed his PhD in 2007 from IIT Roorkee.

The event started with a floral welcome to the Guest speaker by Prof Baldev Setia, Director of PEC.

Prof. Arun Kumar Singh started the session with a brief introduction to the expert lecture. He stated that the lecture aims to give a platform to researchers, academicians and young minds to discuss and know the importance of research in academics in current times.

Prof. Baldev Setia, Director-PEC, extended a warm welcome to Dr. Sandeep Bansal and the faculty members present. He complimented the coordinator for the wonderful move to get all the faulty under one roof for such informative session on Research and Development. He focused on the role of research in an academic institution for its long-term viability and development and knowledge-driven growth based on innovation. He reiterated on the importance of research along with teaching, as it is one of the main parameter for NIRF Ranking. He encouraged all the present members to make the best of the session from an expert in the field.

Dr. Sandeep Bansal, started his session with an introduction to Department of Science and Technology (DST) which aims to promote new areas of Science and Technology in the country. It Provides the largest extramural research and development support to strengthen national S&T capacity and capability (SERB). He further focused on the vision of DST and various fellowships available for researchers and various grants for the faculty members. He further explained various research grants available for new researchers as well as active researchers like Start-up Research Grant, Core Research Grant etc. He further focused on various targeted programmes which are of National Priority which includes Climate Change Studies, Solar Energy Research Initiative, Water Technology Initiative and many more. To mitigate gender disparity in science and engineering research funding in various S&T programs in Indian academic institutions and R&D labs, he explained the SERB Power Research Grants and SERB-Power Fellowship. The session progressed with a brief lecture on Research Proposal Writing and critical areas of assessment for the research proposal.

The lecture progressed with a question-answer session and interactions with the present members. The event ended with Prof. Arun Kumar Singh, extending a vote of thanks. The lecture was attended by Deans, Faculty members of PEC.
