Pune Knowledge Cluster
The PKC will provide opportunities to senior as well as young researchers and professionals, and
students in academic and R&D institutions, industries and other organisations in the city to
participate in ongoing projects of the PKC, propose new projects, organise and deliver lectures,
and participate in and propose schools, workshops and conferences. They can also take part
in discussions, brainstorming sessions and preparation of white papers, and in general join any
of the activities of the PKC, depending on their interest, expertise and experience. There will
also be opportunities for civil society, including high school and college students, to participate
in programmes which will be tailored to their interests and in citizen science projects. Many of
the activities of the PKC will be focussed on capacity building and skill development at all levels.
Opportunities available with the PKC will be regularly publicised through messages sent to email lists,
and published on the PKC website and through social media. Regular webinars, and face-to-face talks and
discussions when those become possible, will be conducted on the programmes of the PKC to make potential
users aware of the opportunities offered.
The activities of the PKC are to be carried out in partnership with various organisations in the city.
To that end, all events of the PKC, including lectures, meetings, and workshops will take place
in premises of institutional and industry partners in the city.
