About Ramalingaswami Reentry Fellowship and Conclave
Ramalingaswami re-entry fellowship scheme was initiated by Department of Biotechnology for Indian nationals who are working in overseas laboratories and would like to return to home country to pursue his/her research interests. This year is 10th anniversary of the fellowship. This conclave is organized to assess the progress made by fellows.
The conclave also acts as a platform where all the scientists selected meet on a common forum to discuss inter alia how well they have been able to relocate, how far their expectations from fellowship have been met, by the host institutions and the funding agency and difficulties, if any, are being faced by them. The conclave is expected to bring together the fellows now in India to share their experiences, promote collegiality and help building enduring professional relationships among them. During the conclave the fellows will also meet senior scientists who have had experience in setting up their own research groups in India, policy makers, research funding agencies and others.

The 8th conclave is being organized by National Institute of Plant Genome Research (NIPGR), New Delhi during 15-17th February 2018. The programs of the conclave will be held jointly at The Ashok Hotel, Diplomatic Avenue, Chankyapuri, New Delhi and NIPGR, New Delhi.

The participation to conclave is by invitation only.
NIPGR is an autonomous institution funded by the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India. The institute started to function in the year 1998 with the mandate to undertake, promote and co-ordinate research in identified aspects of plant genomics. The research programs at the Institute aim to contribute to the understanding of the structure, expression, and function of genes involved in various aspects of plant growth and adaptation to stresses. The knowledge generated from research findings at the Institute is used to breed improved varieties of crops for higher yield at better quality. Through its activities, the institute has placed India among the major contributors to plant genomics.
