According to Union Minister for Education Dharmendra Pradhan on Saturday, the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram (IISER-TVM) must set an example by fusing traditional knowledge with a modern approach. The National Education Policy 2020 aims to refocus attention on rich Indian traditions. He was speaking during the 10th batch of students from the IISER-convocation TVM event.

Society expects an institution of the scale of IISER-TVM to provide cutting-edge scientific solutions to issues faced by humanity, according to Pradhan, who is also the Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. “The multidisciplinary educational philosophy of IISER Thiruvananthapuram is exactly in line with NEP 2020. Society expects an institution of the stature of IISER-TVM to provide unique, science-based answers to issues faced by humanity. The institute must set an example by fusing conventional wisdom with new thinking “Union Minister said

The earliest known style of combat, Kalaripayattu, is one of Kerala’s ancient and traditional knowledge, according to Pradhan. “With very little scientific support for the oils, postures, techniques, and health advantages, the rich traditional knowledge of Kalaripayattu has persisted with Kalari Gurus. NEP 2020 aims to refocus attention on such illustrious Indian traditions. Reviving the Indian Knowledge System is necessary. For the purpose of validating the information found in the Vedas, Puranas, and other such knowledge reservoirs, NEP 2020 aims to harmonise traditional knowledge with scientific research “said he.

Six students graduated with MS research degrees, along with 204 BS-MS students, 30 PhD students, and six integrated PhD students. The occasion was presided over by Professor Arvind A. Natu, chairman of the institute’s board of governors, who stated that the IISER has established itself as a renowned institution of world-class research and exceptional education. The director of IISER-TVM, Professor J. N. Moorthy, gave a report on the institute’s activities and noted that IISER was the first to introduce two-year M.Sc. programmes that adhere to the objectives of the National Educational Policy-2020.
