CREating Science Talent for motivating research (CREST)

It is an innovative programme proposed by the KSCSTE for attracting fresh talents to pursue Science as a career. The basic objective of CREST is to communicate to the youth of the State the exciting opportunities and career options that are open to them and to learn study of scientific facts at an early age and thus build the required critical human resource pool for strengthening and expanding the Science & Technology system and R&D base in Kerala. It is proposed to utilise the benefits of ICT, especially Virtual Classroom Technology to impart real-time and offline training to Students Researchers, Teachers and identified target groups.  As part of this Core infrastructure will be developed, which can be utilised as a common facility by Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment and its R & D Centres for disseminating Scientific Knowledge.
