Prof C N R Rao, Chairman Science Advisory Council to the Prime Minister, expressed appreciation of the government's move to allow scientists and professors to set up industrial units to commercialise their research efforts, even as he called for liberalising the science administration in the country to allow the spirit of scientific inquiry and innovation to flourish.

Inaugurating 'India R&D 2008' on the theme Nanotechnology – The Science of the Future, organised by FICCI in association with the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Prof Rao said: “The challenge before our scientists is to make nano materials in large quantities so that these could be deployed by companies to manufacture novel products”.

Prof Rao also advised the youth to pursue pure sciences with an interdisciplinary approach to come to grips with nanotechnology and the myriad uses that it could be deployed for.

Dr. T Ramsami, Secretary, DST, Ministry of Science & Technology, pointed out that the government was trying to reduce the disconnect between science, nature and the application of scientific discoveries in industry through the Nanotechnology Mission led by Prof. CNR Rao.

Under the Mission, the government would provide Rs 50 lakhs as grant for the start-up of nano research projects. This would encourage research efforts and commercialisation of technologies, Dr. Ramasami said.

Prof VS Ramamurthy, Chairman, FICCI Science & Technology Committee and Chairman Board of Governors, IIT, Delhi, spelt out the contours of India R & D 2008. The day-long conference discussed applications of nanotechnology, policy & regulatory framework and the ethical and, environmental and safety issues.
