PM inaugurates Nobel Prize series

Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi inaugurated the Nobel Prize Series Exhibition at Science City in Ahmedabad as part of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2017.

He greeted the nine Nobel Laureates present on the occasion and hoped that they would inspire the future scientists from all corners of India, who had come together for the occasion.

He said that it is an ideal platform to engage citizens to learn about solutions to global challenges we face. We will strive to make this Science City a truly attractive, world-class place for young students and science teachers from all over the country and the world to come and be inspired by the exhibits.

“Our vision in Science and Technology is to make sure that opportunity is available to all our youth. That training and future preparedness should make our youth employable in the best places. India should be a great science destination”, he mentioned.

He pointed out that scientists develop programmes on science teaching in our schools across the country. This will also involve training teachers. At the next level they have been asked to create new programmes both in skilling and high-tech training. These programmes will make you employable in the new knowledge economy and make you effective entrepreneurs and thinking scientists. You will be able to compete for positions and jobs here and anywhere in the world.

He looked forward to significant outcomes from the Nobel Prize series like  follow up of students selected through an ‘Ideathon’ competition for attending the Nobel Prize series and also their teachers, sessions for school teachers from all over Gujarat during the exhibition, stimulation of entrepreneurship locally.

The Nobel Prize series brought together large number of students, researchers, scientists from all over India who were hoping to interact with the nine Nobel Laureates who were attending the series.
