Posted on Jul 11 2017

 Entrepreneurship based courses will create more employment opportunities in the Country; Says Dr.Sisilamma George, Dean, College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Mannuthy. Dean made this statement while inaugurating the 21 days refresher course on ‘Reshaping Scientific Communication in the Context of Building Entrepreneurship’ from July 11 to 31st 2017 on 11th July 2017 at Mannuthy. Faculty need to promote entrepreneurship in the campus to convert students in to potential employers rather than employees. She added.
While delivering the presidential address Director of Entrepreneurship Dr.T.P.Sethumadhavan suggested that Entrepreneurs face lot of challenges in the context of cognitive, socio political and institutional framework. Identifying opportunities, assembling resources and recruiting and training employees are the challenges faced by all entrepreneurs, and all of these activities require the cooperation and strategic interaction of individuals and groups. Access to capital, markets, and governmental protection are all partially dependent on the level of legitimacy achieved by an emerging industry. Social contexts present entrepreneurs with many constraints, yet they also set the conditions that create windows of opportunity. Through processes of social construction, entrepreneurs can develop new meanings that may eventually alter institutional norms. Government of India is giving more impetus to make in India, Skills India and Digital India. These initiatives will create umpteen job opportunities within the country. Connectivity will facilitate the concept of global village at a faster pace. But there is a huge gap between availability and requirement of resources. This demand supply mismatch needs to be filled in a sustainable manner. There lies the importance of technologies. Universities should act as stakeholder based technology generating and dissemination centres rather than producers of graduates or doctorates. Scientists must see the society and work for them with the help of stakeholders and industry. They need to respect traditional sustainable technologies. Food security, health, sanitation, livelihood and education issues require timely attention and improvement. Technologies for sustainable development must be oriented towards livelihood and food security issues.  Director of International Co-operation Dr.K.P. Sreekumar released the compendium. Director, Academic Staff College Dr. Sunil. B. delivered keynote address. Director of Students welfare Dr.N.Divakaran Nair offered felicitations and Course Director Dr. Deepa Ananth delivered introductory talk. Dr.Krithika welcomed the delegates and Dr.Bipin expressed vote of thanks. 24 Faculty members across the state are attending the refresher training programme.
