15 Aspiration: To beA virtual academy has to be designed to provide the four-way information connectivity between scientific institutions consortiums (lab-to-lab), between institutions and users (lab-to-land), between traditional rural knowledge base to technical experts (land-to-lab) and for lateral learning between rural families (land-to-land)
16 Knowledge leveraging for faster and inclusive growth Inter University Center - NeedDualism in Indian Economy – sluggish agriculture, widening rural-urban inequalitiesKnowledge as a source of growth : diffusion of rural technologies to trigger growth processScattering of knowledge across Institutions : need to bring them togetherKnowledge leveraging for faster and inclusive growthNeed for networked functioningAGRINDUS Dream: Coordination between agriculture, industry and commerce – need for massive collaboration between academic institutions and other sectors and agencies
17 ObjectivesTo serve as a national hub of knowledge connectivity for Rural Development by networking a set of regional hubs or the Regional Platforms for Knowledge Connectivity.To support development of plans and policies for rural development by research, training and demonstration and create functioning packages of social technologies, physical technologies and economic policy strategies for various agro-climatic regions.
18 ObjectivesTo facilitate development of techno-managerial cadres needed for the rural development plans of the country – and to this end create innovative academic programmes. At the same time, evolve HRD package (including training) suitable for the development of each region.To help in working out S&T intervention modules, particularly for the development leap-frogging of the backward regions, by synergizing the resources that are available with various stake-holders like UGC, ICAR, CSIR, industries, ISRO, NGOs and private sector institutions.
19 ObjectivesTo help create special institutional structures and schemes for nurturing leadership in regional development/ entrepreneurship with special focus on the most backward regions.To sponsor creation of new ‘regional rural development universities’, particularly in the most backward agro-climatic regions where networking-mix is not feasible because of non-availability of the requisite infrastructure and skill at present.
