The Newton Bhabha Fund has contributed to creating women leaders in science through its Women in Science workshops that promote the professional development of women scientists. About 370 women scientists were trained in the area of Science Administration & Management, Science Journalism and Science Policy. This resulted in opening many vistas of opportunities that were identified and hence created better employability for these trainees. The Workshop has generated avenues to retain trained women labour force in STEM subjects by narrowing skill gaps and furthering their knowledge to bag newer emerging opportunities.
The evidence-based Science Policy Training Programme supports dialogue and knowledge exchange between policymakers on research governance and strategic research policy development to ensure that the research environment in partner countries is more conducive to achieving maximum impact from high-quality research.
