The Educational Development of North East Region Unit (EDNERU), erstwhile North East Project (NEP), initially sanctioned in 2000 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development out of the Prime Minister’s non-lapsable funds, is established with the objective to create educational access and to equalize the opportunities of education and vocational training to the hitherto ‘unreached’ in the North East Region (NER) cutting across physical and geographical barriers. EDNERU comprises of several operational units, viz., 9 Regional centres with 466 learner support centres and 5 Institutes to cater the needs of students and youth, who desire to pursue higher education and enhance their skills in vocational and technical fields.
The Teleconferencing series would be a regular feature of EDNERU which aims at bringing about greater awareness on the most pertinent and contemporary issues in the NER in the field of education, skill development, conservation of art and culture etc. You may like to give a 25 minutes presentation on a related topic of your choice followed by interaction. The programme would be broadcast through Gyan darshan channel of IGNOU.
