‘Fund shortage has crippled university research’

Citing shortage of funds as the reason for research work being hit in universities across Maharashtra, Minister for Higher and Technical Education Rajesh Tope on Friday batted for participation of private players to perk up the research field.

He also said the government would provide financial education to women financial assistance to women in higher education.

Tope said universities in the state were lagging behind in research work due to paucity of funds. "There is a need to find out a formula, wherein not only the government but private players can also extend support for research work in the universities," he said."Major emphasis should be given on research. Industry-university linkage is a must. Universities should be knowledge creators, not just knowledge disseminators," Tope said addressing the 73rd Indian History Congress, organised by Mumbai University on its Kalina campus.
