VAIBHAV fellowships

For a maximum of three years, a VAIBHAV fellow may visit an Indian institution for up to two months each year of collaboration. Minister of Science and Technology Jitendra Singh, Principal Scientific Advisor A K Sood, Secretary of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), and Member of NITI Aayog V K Saraswat launched the second call for VAIBHAV fellowships.

Data scientist Mansi Manoj Kasliwal, a professor at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) Department of Astronomy, will work at IIT-Bombay, while scientists in artificial intelligence and machine learning from the University of Southern California will collaborate with scientists at the Indian Institute of Science (IISC), located in Bengaluru.

In the field of electronics and semiconductor devices, Prof. Subir Sarkar of the University of Oxford will collaborate with IISER, Pune, while Ajit Srivastava of the University of Geneva will engage with the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in the field of data sciences.

It is argued that Indian scholars benefit from the expertise and experiences of their Indian diaspora colleagues who work abroad, as well as from their distinct perspectives, which broadens their perspectives.
