Global Scientific council Draft Global Scientific council Draft Document Transcript

  • Draft of BBSC’s Global Scientific Council Background India is a land of spiritual gurus, exponents of natural sciences and ancient centers of learning, with a deep rooted philosophy! Bihar is one of the states in India which was the cynosure and paradise for the intellectuals and blessed with scholars of international fame who spread the knowledge and wisdom throughout the world. Unfortunately, the pace of research and development in Bihar has gone down in modern India despite producing high number of graduates, but the genius of Bihar has remained. The fact is that the new Bihar after partition in 2000 still remains one of the most resourceful states in India, contributing huge human resources for the rest of the nation in all sectors of blue and white collar jobs. Such a major contribution for generating national wealth via manufacturing and service sector has had to be sustained with the meagerest of support in education and health, for the last 25 years. Higher education infrastructure has been in decline, little research or industrial consultancy is being carried out, within the Universities of Bihar. This lack of research is however not due to the incapacity of academic intellect – far from it! Financial investment in research infrastructure has suffered a major and sustained drought. In contrast with the adverse working condition – the academicians of Bihar have shown great tenacity despite many years of social injustice and have continued to serve in the best possible way. However, a ray of hope has appeared from BiharBrains Scholastic Center, a Gyan Kendra (under BBrains Development Society, a registered society of India). BBrains Development Society, commonly known as BIHARBRAINS is a non profit organization registered under society Act with a special focus on education and creating an environment for research and development in Bihar. The society came in to existence in 2004 and has established its office in Patna. It is being run by NRIs, NRBs and educated people of Bihar. The Scholastic Center has been formed to pursue the following goals:- a) To provide a platform for discussion of the new sciences via conferences that will help the modernization of teaching and learning experiences. b) To invigorate a programme of training in research and higher education by facilitating workshops on topical subjects in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Earth and Environment Sciences, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences and in Engineering and Technology. c) Via (a) and (b) the BBSC aims to equip young generations in Bihar to tackle problems of BiharBrains Scholastic Center (BBSC), a gyan Kendra (Under BBrains Development Society), 201, OmVihar Commercial Complex, Opp. Hotel Apsara, KadamKuan, Patna, Bihar, India.

  • i) health ii) education iii) poverty iv) energy crisis v) climate change and vi) environment Without these 6 cardinal aims in sight, neither any progress nor its long-term sustainability is feasible. d) To provide workshop opportunities for a successful commercial exploitation of knowledge for the benefit of economy and society. e) to provide a common platform to the scientists, engineers and technologists of all categories, belonging to different disciplines for sharing their expertise and experience To perform the above mentioned tasks, the management committee of BiharBrains felt the need to form a global scientific council in which the selected scientists of India and abroad from core groups and will be called convenor/coordinator of various streams/subject, The conveners will be responsible for research projects and will be providing guidance to young scientists and engineers. The whole core group will be responsible for organizing science conferences, science and technology festivals, seminar, workshops, orientation programs and starting research projects in Bihar. Hence the Name “Global Scientific Council”. This council was formed during first Bihar Science conference, 2008 (BSC 2008) for the purpose of organizing science conferences, starting science magazines/journals, seminars, workshops, orientation programs and establishing R&D centers etc. Aims and Objectives: 1. To advance and promote the cause of Science in Bihar 2. To hold Annual Conferences and Scientific festivals at suitable places in Bihar 3. To hold seminars, workshops, orientation programs as regular feature 4. To publish proceedings, journals for popularizing Science and scientific achievements 5. To provid guidance to BB Society to start and execute the scientific projects and help/support at any stage of the execution of the project. 6. To form research groups and recommend society to help those groups for their research projects from our global networks. 7. To provid guidance, support and consultancy to Govt. and non Govt. agencies.
