Speaking on the occasion, the Governor said that the Centre is giving a lot of attention to the development of the State under its Act East Policy. Now it is for the people of the State and the region to make best use of the opportunity.

�Lab to Land� policy: The Vice President today suggested that the North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology (NERIST) should adopt a �Lab to Land� policy to benefit the society, stating that research and invention must add value to the life of the common people.

The scientists must guide the people towards alternate ways with innovative ideas. The new technologies must be transferred to the field, stated the Vice President while addressing research scholars, students and faculty members of the NERIST at Nirjuli.

Suggesting to the students, research scholars and faculty members to find solutions to the challenges of the people of the region, he said connecting with the life of the common mass, they must explore ways to address the problems such as landslides, etc., in the region.

Naidu said, �The NERIST has a special responsibility to take the lead in developing environment-friendly technologies in the wake of climate change and its adverse impact. Scientists and technocrats cannot remain in ivory towers. Science has no meaning if it does not touch the lives of the people. All scientific endeavours must aim at finding solutions to the problems faced by the society.�
