Published on


National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP), ICAR and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organized a two day workshop on ‘Impact of capacity building programs under NAIP’ on June 6-7, 2014 at AP Shinde Auditorium, NASC Complex, Pusa, New Delhi. The main purpose of the workshop was to present and discuss the findings of the impact evaluation study on capacity building programs under NAIP by IFPRI. The scientists from ICAR and agricultural universities were sent abroad to receive training in specialized research techniques. Post-training, scientists were expected to work on collaborative projects within the ICAR, which would further enrich their knowledge and skills, expand their research network and stimulate them’ to improve their productivity, creativity and quality of their research. The ICAR commissioned with IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute) to undertake an evaluation of these capacity building programs under NAIP in July 2012. The workshop shared the findings on the impact of capacity building programs under NAIP and evolve strategies for future capacity building programs

IFPRI - NAIP - Impact Assessment of International Trainings in Frontier Areas of Agricultural Sciences - Anju Arora

  1. 1. Impact assessment of International Trainings in Frontier Areas of Agricultural Sciences •Name of the Scientist : Anju Arora •Organization: Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi •Duration of Training with Dates: 87 Days, 7.11.2010 to 1.2.2011 •Area of Training: Fermentation Technology ( Biofuels) •Place of Training: Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA. •Expenditure INR 4, 56,247
  2. 2. Research Work undertaken/techniques learned during training • Dilute acid pretreatment and enzymatic saccharification of woody substrates. • Optimize enzymatic saccharification: the necessary enzyme dosage, time, substrate loading and maximize the carbohydrate concentration in hydrolysates. • Studying inhibition of cellulase by pretreatment byproducts • Sugar and product analysis through HPLC as a number of oligomers with different degree of polymerization are formed as a result of pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis with cellulase preparation and only analytical techniques like HPLC and CPC give fine resolution and details about the formation of these products. This enables better understanding of the kinetics of enzyme reaction and deconstruction of biomass
  3. 3. Research being undertaken in the area of training. • NFBSFARA project on Increasing the efficiency of microbial production of bioethanol from agricultural biomass ( as Co PI) • Institute’s challenge program on Biofuels Bioprospecting of microorganisms for sustainable production of second generation liquid biofuels • AMAAS project Title: Metabolic engineering opportunities for enhanced production of biofuels through microbes. Students working • Biological delignification • Production of Biomass hydrolysing Cellulase cocktails • Pentose fermenting yeasts
  4. 4. Training organized student guided etc. in the area of training. National Training • Core National Resource Person in National Training Programme on ‘Fermentation Technology’ with an emphasis on ‘Methods & Scale-up Strategies in Fermentation’ to be organized between 9th December and 22nd December2011 Students Guidance Microbial treatment of lignocellulosic substrate for enhanced enzymatic digestibility Bioprospecting Xanthomonas strains for production of hydrolytic enzymes involved in lignocellulosic decomposition.
