Teamwork in research & development programmes, and consultancy activities in mutually decided areas are being planned, including in domains related to food and nutraceuticals, models for animal

Congratulating the team, Chancellor, SRHU, Dr Vijay Dhasmana stated, “We are delighted that the flood gates would open up for our students to participate in joint collaboration with government
organisations, private entities, PSUs in significant areas, contributing to national development. We look forward to jointly organising scientific events like seminars, conferences, workshops, etc. Exchange of students for summer and winter internships would be a valuable part of our efforts. Outreach programmes for promoting science education and related technological advances for social benefit are
something of utmost value for us as per our vision.”
