New Delhi: Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi delivered the inaugural address at India International Science Festival (IISF) 2020. Union Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan was also present on the occasion.
 
Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said India has a rich legacy in science, technology, and innovation. Our scientists have done path-breaking research. Our tech industry is at the forefront of solving global problems. But, India wants to do more. We look at the past with pride but want an even better future, Shri Modi said.
 
The Prime Minister said all our efforts are aimed at making India the most trustworthy centre for scientific learning. At the same time, we want our scientific community to share and grow with the best of global talent. One of the steps taken to achieve this is hosting and participating in hackathons to provide exposure and opportunity to Indian scientists.
 
The Prime Minister asserted that the New National Education Policy will help in fostering scientific temper from an early age. He said now focus has shifted from outlays to the outcome, from textbooks to research and application. The Policy will encourage the creation of a pool of top-quality teachers. This approach will help the budding scientists. This is being supplemented by Atal Innovation Mission and Atal Tinkering labs,  Shri Modi said.
 
For Quality research, the Government is running Prime Minister Research Fellows Scheme to encourage the best talent of the country to undertake research as per the talent and interest. The Prime Minister informed that the scheme is helping scientists in the top institutes.
 
The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of making the benefits of science and technology to all. He said that Science and technology are bridging the gap of scarcity and impact. It is connecting the poorest of the poor with the government. With digital advances, India is becoming a centre of evolution and revolution of global high-tech power, the Prime Minister added.
 
To achieve this world-class education, health, connectivity, and rural solutions, today’s India has data, demography, and demand. Above all, India has democracy to balance and protect all this. That is why the world trusts India. the Prime Minister stressed.
 
The Prime Minister said there are many challenges in our country like Water Scarcity, Pollution, Soil Quality, Food Security, for which modern science has a solution. Science also has a big role in rapidly exploring the water, energy, and food resources in our sea. He said India is running Deep Ocean Mission for this and has achieved success. He said the benefit of new inventions in science finds a way in commerce and business as well.
 
The Prime Minister said reforms have now been undertaken in the Space Sector to encourage our youth and the private sector to not only touch the sky, but also the heights of deep space. He said the new Production Linked Incentive Scheme also focuses on sectors related to science and technology. Such steps will give a boost to the scientific community, the ecosystem related to science and technology will get better and generate more resources for innovation and create a new culture of partnership between science and industry. He wished that this festival would give new dimensions to the Spirit of Coordination and Collaboration between Science and Industry as new collaborations will lead to new avenues.
 
The Prime Minister stressed that the biggest challenge facing science now may be a vaccine for the COVID pandemic. But the biggest long term challenge science faces is to attract high-quality youngsters and retain them. He lamented the attraction of youths towards technology and engineering domains and stressed the need for developing science for the development of the country. He further added what is called science today, becomes the technology of tomorrow and an engineering solution later. He said for attracting good talent into our science domain, the government has announced scholarships at various levels. But it needs a big out-reach from within the scientific community as well. He said the excitement surrounding Chandrayaan Mission was a great starting point to evince interest from youngsters.
 
The Prime Minister gave a call to the global community to invest in Indian talent and innovate in India. He told the gathering that India has the brightest minds, and celebrates a culture of openness and transparency. The Government of India stands ready to address any challenge and improve the research environment here. He said Science brings out the best within the person and uses the power of difference. He lauded our scientists for keeping India ahead and in a better position in the fight against Corona.
