Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research(INSPIRE) Programme

News:Recently, a recipient of INSPIRE programme award has developed a quantum chemistry based software useful for radiation therapy.


INSPIRE Programme:

  • Launched Year:2008
  • Nodal Ministry: Ministry of Science & Technology.
  • Aim:To attract talented youth to the study of science at an early stage and build the required critical human resource pool for strengthening and expanding the Science & Technology system and R&D base.
  • Components: a) Scheme for Early Attraction of Talents for Science (SEATS) b) Scholarship for Higher Education(SHE) and c) Assured Opportunity for Research Careers(AORC).

Additional Facts:

  • Quantum chemistry:It is a branch of chemistry focused on the application of quantum mechanics in physical models and experiments of chemical systems.It is also called molecular quantum mechanics.
