State Govt boost to research with ‘Gobeshonay Bangla’ scheme
The State Government has come up with a special scheme for enabling college and university professors to conduct research in subjects of their choice, under which such researchers will get grants and all facilities for conducting their research. The scheme is called Gobeshonay Bangla.
Teachers interested in conducting research have to send detailed applications to the Education Department by September 15. After that, a special committee of the department will decide who would be given the grants.
There are a few conditions for getting the grants. The primary one is that the research has to be conducted in the State.
Topics related to agriculture, fisheries, animal husbandry, biotechnology, vocational and technical training, environment and a few others would be given special stress on while deciding grants.
Opportunities would also be given for travelling to foreign countries for research.
