By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, May 9 � In a bid to inspire and provide a platform to learn, share and grow, the North East Technology Forum (NETF) will hold a seminar on education, innovation and entrepreneurship here in August this year.

The seminar will feature talks by prominent innovators and entrepreneurs from the Northeast, as well as India and abroad. The primary objective of the seminar will be to act as a catalyst to fuel innovation among students, entrepreneurs and others from the Northeast.

The event will be shown live at prominent educational institutions of the Northeast and the proceeds from sponsorship or ticket sales from these individual events will be donated to the institution. The video feed of the event will also be shown live on the event website and once the event is over, videos of each individual talk will be made available on the event website and video sites on the Internet.

According to Manish Choudhury, NETF president, the event will be an exciting one-day conference that will bring together scientists, technocrats, top government officials, policy and decision makers, innovators, educationists, entrepreneurs, corporate houses, businessmen, students and other prominent people from across the Northeast.

�We are inviting abstracts from interested speakers on education, innovation and entrepreneurship on or before May 30. The opportunity is open to all and the abstract should not exceed 1,000 words. The abstract may be in English, Assamese, Hindi or any other regional language,� he added.

The seminar will provide a platform for local innovators and entrepreneurs to showcase their ideas and innovations to an international audience. Speakers from different parts of India and abroad will address the audience through video-conferencing and local speakers from the Northeast will deliver their talks in person.

Dr Bijay Krishna Dev Sarma, noted science writer and mathematician and adviser, NETF, said that it was a first-of-its-kind initiative in the region which aims at inspiring people.

The Northeast has a lot of educational institutes and students from the region do not lack educational opportunities. However, the students lack guidance and nurturing and a lot of them are confused as to what they want to do after their studies.

�I am confident that this forum will provide a good platform to give direction and guidance to our youths to start new initiatives or add impetus to their goals,� Dr Sarma added.
