Manav Rachna International Institute of Research & Studies (MRIIRS, formerly Manav Rachna International University) Hosts “Anveshan 2017-18 North Zone Student Research Convention” from February 26 & 27, 2018 at its campus. Anveshan is among the most coveted research conventions organized by the Association of Indian Universities every year.

Dr. Pradeep Varshney is the Convenor for the North Zone Convention.
In his address Dr. Amarendra Pani said: “Envisaged as a zonal and national level competition, Anveshan acts as a platform for emerging researchers to express their ideas that can lead to innovative research initiatives. It also presents the research and innovation happening in the universities”.
While giving advice to all the young researchers at the Convention, Dr. Dinakar Kanjilal said: “Sustaining oneself on the path of excellence is a necessity in today’s times. A student may be able to come first, but to be able to sustain it in the longer run and keep up with the pace is far more important”.
Students from various Universities across North India have put by their projects in the exhibition around six key themes: Agriculture; Basic Sciences; Engineering & Technology; Health Sciences and Allied Subjects; Social Sciences, Humanities, Commerce and Law. Around 70 projects are on display at the exhibition. The research projects of the students will be judged on the basis of their display and their oral presentation.
