Our visiting researcher Venkat Prakash presented yesterday, at the School of Engineering, Plymouth University, UK, his doctoral thesis entitled "Motivation to Conduct Research in a Rapidly Evolving Academic Environment: Study of Coimbatore’s Engineering Institutions". The research was supervised by Mike Miles, from Plymouth University, and co-supervised by Maria de Lourdes Machado-Talylor, CIPES's senior researcher.
CIPES received FCT funding for the next three years to carry out the Know-Best project: Partnerships in Knowledge production: Beliefs, Strategies and Tensions.
