Fascinating and thought provoking talk by Dr S Sivaram

On 25 September 2014 (eve of CSIR Foundation Day),  Dr S Sivaram delivered a fascinating and thought provoking talk titled “Publicly funded research institutions and the legacy of Sir Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar” at the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Lecture Theatre, Polymers and Advanced Materials Lab, NCL, Pune organised by the Venture Center Library under its Inspiration Series.

While the early part of the talk covered the life and legacy of Dr Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar, a large part of the talk also explored the origins and original purpose of the network of publicly funded research institutions that Dr Bhatnagar helped build for a newly independent India.
