It has exposed the immense need for collaboration and robust research faculties. To tackle global challenges, it is vital for people working in diverse areas to come together and pool in their expertise to address the global challenges. The looming threat of future pandemics and the growing devastation have highlighted the need for collaborations rather than working in silos.” 

Adding further he mentioned, “Today, innovations are happening at an unprecedented pace. Researchers in India are making great strides in quantum technologies, machine learning, neuromorphic computing & cyber-physical systems. Exciting career opportunities await graduates in many of these emerging areas. There is especially a growing need for young students and researchers trained in India to develop indigenous solutions that can help address problems specific to our country, like malnutrition, water scarcity, and infectious diseases like TB & malaria”
