Welcome Message from the Chair

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Indian National Young Academy of Sciences (INYAS). INYAS was founded by the INSA council in December 2014. Vision of INYAS is to promote science education and networking among young scientists. Through our many initiatives, such as National Frontiers of Science meetings, symposiums, Science outreach camps, remote area lectures and many more, we are actively working to connect the young scientists of the country as well as world for Science promotion. INYAS provides a platform to exchange ideas, initiate discussions on scientific topics, collaborations among the new generation of scientists and to make the voices of the young researchers be heard by senior academicians and policy makers of the country. We have taken some steps in the direction of promoting Indian journals. In one of such effort, we decided to bring a special issue of Proceeding of INSA (PINSA) by INYAS members in 2018. I feel proud to say that 1st INYAS special issue of PINSA was released in Nov. 2019. From this year, we also made it mandatory to all INYAS members to publish at least one paper in Indian journal during their five years of tenure as INYAS member. With the aim of improving academia for our country and popularization of Science at all levels especially from the Indian Young Scientists perspective, let’s come forward and join hands with us and set sail toward a better future for India with the help of Science and Technology.
Jai Hind!
