IIT Guwahati conducts workshop on ‘Technology Vision 2047’ for NE region

Guwahati: Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati recently hosted a two-day brainstorming workshop for Northeast India for structured discussion on Technology Vision 2047 with faculty members, professionals, and stakeholders from various scientific disciplines invited from the 8 states of North-East India, media reports said.

The workshop was jointly organised by IIT Guwahati and Technology Information Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC) and was designed to capture the thoughts and ideas about future India from the experts, reports East Mojo.

Prominent industrialist Prabhat Kamal Bezbaruah attended the event as the chief guest.

The workshop was attended by more than 60 experts and about 70 students from different disciplines, the news portal reported.

Speaking during the workshop, Prof. Parameswar K. Iyer, Officiating Director, IIT Guwahati, shared his thoughts about the future India, reports the news portal.

He said, “North East region is blessed with rich biodiversity and every state has its own unique agricultural products with the possibility to tap into the world market. However, the problem is that they perish before they reach to the market due to a lack of storage facilities and other allied amenities. Facilitating an ecosystem of allied technologies, skilling of manpower in niche technologies and promoting technology-aided development will provide thrust for this region and make it an engine of growth in multiple sectors.”
