As a part of the extended public and expert consultations under the STIP 2020 process, the ‘In Conversation with’ series focuses on in-depth interactions with eminent experts and thought leaders from across the country to know their ideas and vision for the nation’s Science, Technology, and Innovation ecosystem. Suggestions emerging from these discussions will directly serve as inputs to the STIP2020 policy process.
The series was inaugurated by the guiding force of the STIP 2020 process, Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Minister of Science & Technology, Health & Family Welfare and Earth Sciences. During this live event, the Hon’ble Minister launched the “STIP 2020 campaign page on MyGov portal”.
