Public Policy Lecture - Science, the fulcrum for social and economic change in India - 27 Nov 2018

INVITATION: Science, the fulcrum for social and economic change in India

The 2018 Dr Seng Tee Lee Public Policy Lecture will be delivered by Professor K Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India

27 November 2018, Peterhouse, Cambridge

17:30 - 19:00 followed by drinks reception

Hosted and chaired by Professor Stephen Toope, Vice Chancellor, University of Cambridge

Professor K Vijay Raghavan was appointed Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India in March 2018, having served as the Secretary to the Department of Biotechnology. In his lecture, Professor Raghavan will discuss the role of science in India and its potential to impact on society and the economy.

India aims to make science central to its development, while ensuring that support for science as a beautiful and intellectually rewarding pursuit is also enhanced. India was one of the few post-colonial countries to invest substantially in science. The ambition now is to see the impact of current changes in science policy by 2022, seventy-five years after independence.

We do hope you will join us for the lecture on 27 November. For more information and to register your attendance, please visit our website.
