The newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of Jammu University, Prof Umesh Rai met Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Friday and sought integration of science curriculum by engaging and enrolling students of the varsity in various new student and youth-related StartUp and other projects of the Ministry of Science and Technology.

This was Rai’s first meeting with the Minister of State (Independent Charge), Science and Technology, after taking over as the vice chancellor. He requested the minister to engage the students from the University of Jammu in some of the futuristic science projects launched under the ministry.

Singh responded that the research in the university has to be linked with StartUps and to make the StartUps sustainable, not only the academic streams need to come together but the industry also needs to be made equal stakeholders with equal investments of resources.
