Laboratories Should Generate Fresh Ideas-Dr. Harsh Vardhan



Laboratories Should Generate Fresh Ideas-Dr. Harsh Vardhan 
Laboratories should start brainstorming with youngsters to generate fresh ideas which can help the country said Dr. Harshvardhan, Union Minister for Science and Technology. 


Inaugurating the 16th edition of the Bangalore India Bio-2016, Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that providing affordable healthcare solutions to the common man is a challenge before scientists and technologists. Experienced scientists should start afresh out-of-the-box process of brainstorming with our young scientists he added.

Addressing on the Startup India initiative of the government, the minister said, “an amount of Rs 10,000 crore has been kept only to support the young people in the country who have bright and brilliant ideas, and I think this is where the country needs to use the young people."

Stating that India needs more affordable medicines and technology, the minister said that there are lots of advancements taking place in healthcare sector. Every advancement takes the healthcare delivery system a little distance away from the common man because of the cost." The challenge before scientists, technologists and others is to make it affordable for people, he said.

Dr. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Chairman, Biocon India Ltd and other dignitaries were present during the occasion.

The three-day Bangalore India Bio will feature events like conferences, international trade show and keynote talks by eminent personalities.
