NE-STEP; Broad Goal: While Indian R&D labs have developed many technologies of relevance to the society and the industry, adequate information regarding these technologies often do not reach the students and the public. This is particularly true for the North-East. Proper exposure to the CSIR products/technologies to the students/public will have high outreach effect. It can also have triggering effects on the local SME and entrepreneurs, building a proper ecosystem for various technologies. However, such exposure is effective only if they are based on actual models available on a sustained basis.
In order to provide with much needed support for the holistic and sustainable development for the students and community across the North East India, The Assam Kaziranga University, in collaboration with CSIR National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies (CSIR-NISTADS) has initiated the North-East Science, Technology & Entrepreneurship Pavilion (NESTEP).
NE-STEP is being established as a facility to expose students, entrepreneurs and general public to various science and technology solutions developed in the country and to facilitate entrepreneurs to know and identify enterprise potential, with emphasis on North East.
