This will help in articulating the road map of endeavours to be future taken by the Council.

Uttarakhand is an increasingly important research economy. Its research workforce capacity and R&D investment are expanding rapidly offering many new possibilities in a diversifying research portfolio. However it has received much less attention than other states.

This report shows that UCOST output has been substantial and far exceeds as compared to the nascent councils. Relative to the rest of the states, Uttarakhand has exceptional capacity in biology based disciplines and research related to the natural resource management.
Policy makers in well-established research organizations need to understand what is happening and be prepared to engage with new landscapes.

  1. Research, Development & Demonstration (RD & D)
  2. Science popularization & establishment of Vigyan Dham
  3. S&T based Entrepreneurship Development Programme (EDP)
