Sci-ROI is an initiative of WINStep Forward. WINStep Forward is a non-profit set up by Prof. Aseem Ansari (Department of Biochemistry, University of Wisconsin, Madison) to manage the Khorana and Bose Scholars Programs. While Sci-ROI will work closely with officials and institutions from India, it is not currently organized or funded by the Indian government.
Our vision document has more information about the nature and scope of Sci-ROI.
Sci-ROI is a vibrant community of scientists, scholars, and accomplished individuals who intend to engage in research and entrepreneurial opportunities in India. Sci-ROI is an ideal platform to get information about available resources and programs. Members have opportunities to interact with senior policy leaders, heads of educational and research institutions and entrepreneurs.
In addition, members can form collaborations with peers and undertake joint ventures. You can also have a positive impact on science policy and institution building in India. Members have preferential access to events organized by Sci-ROI including webinars and mentoring programs.
