We should move away from mediocrity and aspire to be among the best institutions globally – Vice President to academia

Addressing the 69th convocation ceremony of the Panjab University in Chandigarh on 6th May, the Vice President, Mr. M. Venkaiah Naidu, said that we should move away from mediocrity and not be satisfied with what we have achieved.

Emphasis should be given on the need for universities to accord greater importance to implementable patents under intellectual property rights to give a fillip to the economy and industry. He termed it necessary to strengthen industry-institute linkages for better research outcomes.

The universities should be encouraged to further create an environment of continuous professional development for teachers and faculty members to focus on ground-breaking research.
