September 17, 2020: An AdaptNET E-learning lab has been inaugurated in Tezpur University recently by Prof. V.K. Jain, Vice Chancellor, Tezpur University, in presence of the AdaptNET collaborators from Agricultural University of Athens, Greece; Universita Degli Studi Di Milano, Italy; Universita Politecnica Delle Marche, Italy; Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat; International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics, Andhra Pradesh, University of Agricultural Sciences, Karnataka and Ecosystems, Assam.

 “AdaptNET is a capacity building project supported by Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission under Erasmus+ initiative to strengthen education, research, and innovation for climate smart crops, an agricultural practice that sustainably increase productivity and system resilience while reducing greenhouse gas emissions in India”, explained Prof. Debendra Chandra Baruah, Head, Department of Energy, Tezpur University and principal investigator of AdaptNET-TU. “The creation of an E-learning laboratory at Tezpur University is an important step towards capacity building”, Prof. Baruah further added.

It is worth mentioning that four faculty members viz. Dr. Nirmali Gogoi, Dr. Eeshan Kalita, Dr. Shailen Deka and Dr. Ratul Kr. Baruah from Tezpur University were recently trained in the frontier areas of Climate Change mitigation in premier European institutions. These faculty members are currently engaged in disseminating their know-how through a multi-disciplinary choice-based credit system course titled “Climate change mitigation and energy management for crop-based livelihood” for the students of Tezpur University.

The University has a plan to train Ph.D. students of Indian Higher Educational Institutions including Tezpur University as a capacity-building mandate in European institutions under the project.
