IBSD centres

Imphal| The Imphal-based Institute of Bio-resources and Sustainable Development (IBSD) is opening two centres in New Delhi shortly to to nurture and strengthen immense talents of students by providing a forum for ‘expression and innovation.’

The two centres - IBSD Kalandi North East Centre for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Kalandi College and IBSD Miranda House Centre for Women’s studies at Miranda House – will be inaugurated later this month at the national capital.

IBSD Director Prof Dinabandhu Sahoo said that Northeast students studying in various disciplines in the national capital can take their time out and attend periodic sensitisation programmes on setting up of business establishment once they went back home after their studies.

Besides, they also can exchange ideas with wide range of people from diverse fields belonging to other parts of the country to bridge the “missing link”, he said.

It will also create awareness, educate on both research based understanding of the challenges and opportunities in a culturally sensitive manner and ultimately lead to achieve the sustainable development activities as the centres aims to focus right from under-graduate students, he felt.

IBSD, which currently has just one centre in Sikkim apart from its existing Takyelpat campus near here, has been undertaking various research based programmes in collaboration with 15 well known research institutes in the country and abroad.
