Participants were asked to focus their research areas on topics that benefit the community, society, nation and the globe. They were also urged to use practical and live data in preference to hypothetical data. Each training day was divided into 4 sessions of one and half hour each in workshop mode. The last session was devoted exclusively to doubt clearing and practice.

Participants were instructed to predict with confidence what may happen next so that they can make smarter decisions, solve problems and improve outcomes. They were also informed about important software available as ready-reckoner for smoothness in their various research analyses.”
All participants were appreciative of the efforts put up by LPU in terms of learning environment, venue setting, infrastructure provided, study material and content delivery. Participants were also impressed by the subject expertise of the resource persons.
