Workshop on Excitement of Research
The eleventh edition of Workshop on Excitement of Research is being planned on Saturday, 11 February 2023. One of the primary intent of this workshop is to infuse in prospective research students the need to undertake research activities at a young age, for the larger benefit of the society. Capability to undertake research requires fair amount of knowledge in specific domains related to the research work.
Scholars who are good in academics would be in a better position to analyse research problems and solve them. With advances in knowledge, the capability to analyse and solve also increases. If the problem and solution are known beforehand, then the activity doesn’t belong to the research domain.
To expose probable research students to the nuances of doing research, iHub-Data is organising a one-day Workshop on Excitement of Research before an invited audience of undergraduate students.
The schedule of the event would be as follows:
9:30 – 9:35 am Welcome Address – Prof U Deva Priyakumar, Academic Director iHub-Data
