“Right to Research (R2R) Foundation” to promote Indian researchers launched
With a view to support foreign-educated and trained Indian researchers to help them find suitable jobs, upon their return to the country, a group of researchers and academicians have launched the Right to Research (R2R) Foundation.
It has been observed that a significant number of Indian researchers are returning from overseas, after obtaining their MS, PhDs and post doctorate fellowships. And despite their high qualifications and training, many of them do not get suitable jobs or do not get absorbed in research.
The R2R Foundation calls it ‘Intelligent Reverse Brain Drain’. Therefore, to engage such researchers, the foundation has been established and has started operations near Pune’s Hinjewadi Biotech Park.
To begin with, R2R Foundation has established dry lab facilities, to engage around 25 researchers. The researchers will be engaged in inter-disciplinary research thought process, and will find good opportunities in India.
