Short-duration Lecture Workshops form an important segment of the activities under the Science Academies' Programmes organized by the Joint Science Education Panel of the three Science Academies. These are of 2-3 days duration intended for the benefit of students and teachers at the undergraduate, graduate and research levels. The Workshop should be so designed as to have useful relevance to the materials covered in the graduate and under-graduate programmes and can then also cover some topics at research level.
Lecture Workshops are arranged on carefully chosen topics in physics, mathematics, chemistry, life sciences, earth sciences and engineering at selected college and university departments for the benefit of local students and teachers. Speakers include Fellows and scientists from nearby institutions.
Since inception to till date, 690 such Workshops have been organized all over India.
Proposals to organize new Lecture Workshops on all subjects are invited for consideration by the Science Panel.
