Lack in innovation, quality research foremost challenge for nation: Javadekar

NEW DELHI: Lack in innovation and quality research was the foremost challenge for the country, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said today.

He was chairing a three-day national conference of vice-chancellors from across the country.

“Lack in innovation and quality research is the foremost challenge before the country. Quality expansion and teaching reform is the need of the hour,” the Minister said.

The Minister further emphasised on creating a positive and lively environment to enhance the quality of education in all central and private universities.

“It is time to show India’s prowess to the world in the field of education. The country hosts many world-class educators who are working in silos and they need to break walls and come forward to share their knowledge,” Javadekar said.

“It has been found that many Indians, including few parliamentarians, are among the world’s top teachers and the country should make the best use of such resources,” he added. (AGENCIES)
