One of our key priorities is to work tirelessly to push the boundaries of knowledge and to address the most pressing challenges of our times. The desired output is to elevate all the stakeholders, create a positive impact on the society and influence public policy. As the founding Dean Research, am really privileged and tremendously excited to shape the research culture at the campus. It is a pleasure to welcome you to align your research initiatives with ours to produce exemplary research and to address the most pressing challenges of our time.
Global grand challenges, such as climate change, economic prosperity, inequality, healthcare, food security, education, wellness and wellbeing, sustainability etc, are complex and multifaceted problems that require a concerted effort from researchers and practitioners across multiple disciplines. Research plays a crucial role in addressing these challenges by providing evidence-based solutions and informing policy decisions. As the Dean of Research, I am committed to fostering an environment that encourages and supports innovative thinking, cutting-edge research, and knowledge creation.
Thank you for your interest in our research endeavours. We look forward to producing/ sharing highest quality research with you that is meaningfully relevant and impactful for human kind.
The research cell at Rishihood University was established in 2022 to facilitates the research agenda of the university. It caters to all the research needs of Rishihood faculty, researchers and learners and encourages them to conduct cutting edge research for transforming society and creating a difference.
A nation where social impact is guided by academic research and vice versa.
Expand frontiers of knowledge to guide social impact.
We to adopt a three pronged strategy in alignment with the Rishihood mission to create the required research environment as follows:
a). Vyakti – People – We build the research capacity of each individual to attain their maximum potential. This includes faculty, scholars and learners. To achieve this goal we do the following:
1. Provide trainings to build a research mindset and capability
2. Create an appraisal system that incentivizes research in alignment with the university mission
3. Facilitate career growth for high achievers
4. Strive to provide the right infrastructural and financial support
b). Vichar – Thought – Our research areas will be motivated by the global grand challenges of our times and the ones the global community can foresee. We will publish and promote our research to contribute to the knowledge base to address these challenges. We will not work in silos but rather actively seek and provide collaboration. We would bring researchers from various streams together for intellection to solve these challenges.
c). Vyavastha – Systems – We understand that impact at scale is achieved by institutionalizing our thought in systems. We will institutionalize our knowledge in systems and institutions that govern this nation. We will actively ensure that our research outcomes reach various stakeholders that need them i.e. development activists, community leaders, policy makers, think tanks, research institutions, etc. Our research in turn will be motivated by the issues and challenges these stakeholders face. We will participate in forums where such interactions are facilitated.
