The University Grants Commission (UGC) on Tuesday asked all higher education institutions across the country to provide information on the existing government-funded equipment they own to create an “online national network”.
According to the UGC, the Government of India plans to establish “online national network” to enable researchers to utilise the facilities for their academic or non-academic research and development work.
“The Government of India has planned to establish an online national network that lists all the scientific, technical, analytical, research equipment facilities procured with funds provided by the agencies of the Government of India,” UGC Secretary Rajnish Jain said in his letter to the institutions.
“The sharing of facilities through the online portal will bring down the cost of doing research across the country,” he added.
