Scientific Social Responsibility
Part of: GS Prelims
- Under this programme, researchers who are working on a science project funded by any of the Ministries under the Central government will have to undertake activities to popularise science and make it more accessible to the public.
- Centre would draw up a list of activities which could be taken up under the Scientific Social Responsibility programme, that was similar to Corporate Social Responsibility.
- The activities could range from going to colleges delivering lectures, writing an article in a magazine or doing something beyond the curriculum.
- The move would not only bridge the gap between research institutes and the civilians, but also help scientists hone their communication skills.
