Vijayawada: CSIR Director-General Dr Shekhar C Mande said that the benefits of research projects should be useful to the society.
Participating as chief guest in the launch of Sree Padmavati Venkateswara Foundation Research Grant Programme here on Friday, Dr Shekhar said that pollution caused by industrial effluents should be contained with effective tools and innovations.
He also urged the people to promote research sector as the government was only the sponsor in India for research. Vidita Vaidya, from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, was granted a fund of Rs 3 crore for her research work on 'Stress leading to Brain malfunctioning.'
Speaking after receiving the Sree Padmavati Venkateswara Foundation Research Grant, Prof Vidita Vaidya, thanked the founders of the Foundation Chadalawada Sudha and Nageswara Rao for supporting her research.
