NMIET in association with Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai organized an outreach program For a sustainable and all inclusive growth of sources of energy. BARC thought that Having mastered the complete nuclear fuel cycle through indigenous efforts, India is now poised to realize, over the next few decades, the full potential of nuclear power to substantially contribute to meeting the country’s growing energy requirements. In order to achieve this goal, in our large democratic country, it is important to have the full confidence and the support of all sections of the society.
The academic and knowledge communities of our society, in particular, have a tremendous strength and role to objectively communicate and engage in informed debates on policy-making as well as in public platforms – that include web-forums and the media – on issues of national interest, with an immense impact on the sustainability of our future growth. These issues include energy security, food security, water security, health security and national security. Atomic energy contributes to address each of these five issues. Keeping this in mind, Bhabha Atomic Research Center has embarked on a public awareness programme to reach out to academic institutes, R&D institutions and industries. The programmes in academic institutes facilitate a multiplier effect by providing authentic technical information and exposure to the faculty members, and also help young graduates to make an informed decision to join the atomic energy programme.
