Swecha congratulates ISRO and the nation on this great achievement

Swecha, part of Free Software Movement of India, congratulates the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) upon its successful Mars mission. This achievement has been possible only because of the relentless efforts of all the scientists at ISRO, who have stayed back to serve our motherland despite several lucrative opportunities abroad. Swecha salutes all such scientists.

With this feat, India becomes only the fourth country in the world, next only to the USA, European Union and Russia, to have succeeded in a Mars mission! What's more laudable is the fact that ISRO has achieved this herculean task in the very first attempt itself and in a shoestring budget of approximately 450 crore rupees. This, by any standard, is no mean achievement.

The successful completion of Mars Orbiter Mission also goes on to demonstrate the technological prowess of Indian brains, and we urge the Indian government to ensure that such indigenous technology is promoted in other spheres too, say for instance in mobile manufacturing, which has got a tremendous scope for employment generation.

An open seminar on "Employment Opportunities in a Changing Technology Landscape" -“A New Vision For Employement”

Times are fast changing. The employment landscape is no longer as bright as it was in the early 2000's. Several studies indicate that the demand for IT engineers has remained at 4 lakhs for the past decade or so while the number of engineers trying to get into the IT sector has zoomed over to 15 lakh.

Workshop on "Floss for Research and Innovation" for Academicians and Research Scholars on 6th & 7th Sep 2014.

Floss for Research and Innovation

Workshop on “FLOSS for Research and Innovation- A Collaborative Approach”
In the present technological era there is an increased penetration of the computing tools and techniques into modern science and technology, education. The technological research is facing challenges of not just teaching the conceptual models of Science & Technology but also equip, train and enable students, researchers and industrial work force to handle these in the furtherance of their goals and objectives.

An important challenge to this happens to be the ready availability of such tools, ability to study and modify them suitably to the evolving scientific and technological tempers at both individual and institutional levels. Fostering this scientific and research temper, enabling and empowering the individuals, Swecha in association with FSMI organized its First National Convention for Academics and Research (NCAR-2010). In its succession on the eve of teachers’ day celebrations, Swecha is organizing the a two-day workshop on Research and Innovation.

This workshop provides a platform for collaboration and sharing the ideas of innovation and various approaches for FLOSS based research. The present situation of digital barriers like infrastructure, computing restrictions, and preparing ourselves for future tasks will be the main goal.
