PME and Impact Assessment Studies

Over the last 15 years, the Academy has been engaged in science communication and technology dissemination activities, through conferences, training workshops, certificate courses, essay and quiz competitions, publications, etc. for academicians, students and general public. In order to assess the societal impact of these programmes, the Karnataka Science and Technology Academy proposes to undertake an Impact Assessment Study now and after every five years. Further, in the change process, Prioritisation, Monitoring & Evaluation are assuming importance for any organisation, that on institutionalisation, would project the potential benefits for stakeholders and enhance public participation.
