We expect members from every study/project to participate in this activity.

Administrator declares the responsibility for every fortnight. Every study/project will be given reasonable opportunity to participate.

What will be presented at Vadu JC?

Vadu JC is scientific platform which provides researchers an opportunity to explore significant developments in the research area of their interest. Researchers are required to present articles with significant findings, methods, or concepts that are published in national and international peer reviewed journals. This will be followed by an interactive session where the article will be discussed for its merit and criticized accordingly. However, apart from scientific papers, interesting and scientifically related material like talks, debates, discussions, reports, amendments could be presented based on the context with prior approval from administrator.

What are the Benefits?

In addition to the transfer of knowledge, members will receive a platform to develop their presentation and communication skills. Member’s active involvement in Vadu JC may be considered as an element for future academic opportunities such as participation in national and international workshops, trainings and higher education. This may also be considered as criteria for yearly staff assessment/appraisals and promotions.
