Uttarakhand State Science and Technology Congress organised by UPES

University of Petroleum & Energy Studies (UPES) in collaboration with Uttarakhand State Council and NSERB and Govt. of India Science & Technology department organised a seminar in Dehradu to build a close communication between science and media. It is believed that media is more focused and directed towards entertainment, politics, fashion and film industry, whereas Science does not reach out to as many people as it should.

The session commenced with the speech given by Devendra Mewari, an eminent science writer from New Delhi followed by the speech delivered by five lead speakers, editors of various newspapers and also experts who gave commendable views on howthis gap of science and social media can be bridged.

  • Mr.Biju Negi, Beej Bachao Andolan, Uttarakhand

  • Mr.Rajeev Lochan Shah, Editor in Chief, Nainital Samachar

  • Mr.P. Sunderarajan, independent science journalist (ex-The Hindu), New Delhi

  • Shri Utkarsh Sinha, media person from Lucknow

  • Dr. Vir Singh, GB Pant University, Pantnagar

The experts at the session include:

  • Mr. Girish Gururani, Editor, Hindustan Times (Hindi), Dehradun

  • Mr. Kuldeep Singh Panwar, Senior Sub-Editor, I Next, Dehradun

  • Mr. Virendra Bhardwaj, Bureau Chief, Punjab Kesri, Dehradun
