New Delhi: The country’s scientists should focus on developing technologies for improving the quality of life of the common man and must set time frames to achieve targets, Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan has said. According to a ministry statement released on Saturday, the minister said the government was “striving to bridge the gap” between the common man and scientists so that the result of scientific research reaches every citizen of the country.

“Scientists should focus on developing technologies to improve the life of the common man and coming months would see each of the laboratories focusing its resources on developing specific lines of inventions,” Harsh Vardhan said at the Raman Research Institute in Bengaluru on Friday. Urging scientists to develop at least one technology in the strategic sector in each laboratory in India, he said: “There should be a method for scientists to work and set time frames to achieve targets. Indian laboratories are now expected to devise ways to develop industry driven technologies, including game changing technologies.”


Harsh Vardhan urged the scientists community to be a “catalytic agent” in evolving India into a strong and prosperous country and said the government was ready to “pump in more funds into scientific research”. “Studies and experiments in the field of earth sciences are underway for a better prediction of climate conditions. The government is ready to pump in more funds into scientific research,” he said.
