NEW DELHI : India has always benefited from cooperation with Africa, and mutually beneficial ties are win-win for growing relationships not only in science and technology, but also in trade, culture and social sciences during the CD roundtable discussion Raman International Fellowship for Program for African Researchers (CVRF) with African Missions in India, said S Chandrasekhar, Secretary of the Ministry of Science and Technology.

“DST has worked with MEA and our African friends on various capacity building programs such as CV Raman Fellowship, training programs and strengthening academic and scientific institutes. I would like the CV Raman Fellowship to become as popular as Germany’s Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship,” Chandrasekhar noted.
