The inauguration ceremony officially kicked off a one-month workshop series where students will engage in cutting-edge research in emerging fields, exploring, discovering, and innovating while receiving inspiration from experienced scholars. By providing a platform for scholars to exchange ideas, showcase their work, and engage in fruitful discussions, APIIT seeks to nurture a vibrant research culture conducive to innovation and academic excellence.
