Four-day DBT Conclave 2022 commences at RGCB

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 1 (UNI) Noting that social sector in the country is not growing vis-à-vis scientific progress, Dr Rajesh Gokhale, Secretary, Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, on Thursday urged scientists to ramp up their ability to effectively communicate to society that technology, deeply ingrained in scientific thesis, can improve life.
Dr Gokhale said the real problem is lack of connect between science and society, and the scientific community should learn to communicate through various media, including Twitter, Facebook, videos and newspapers, to drum up support for their pursuits.
“If you don’t get support, the investment that goes into science and in you stays back and the country suffers,” he said while inaugurating the four-day DBT Conclave organised by Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB) here last evening.
