Prof. Soumyajit Roy, IISER Kolkata visited BioNEST-BHU & delivered an insightful lecture to motivate students for innovation-based start-ups. Prof. Soumyajit talked about his innovations and educated students about the “Alternate Opportunities in Science”. In pursuits of Innovation, Prof Soumyajit founded Solaire Pvt. Ltd., a research innovation startup, with a team of other enthusiastic engineers, meds, and scientists, who have created a highly acclaimed Oxygen generator device, OM REDOX, Your Oxygen Box, to address the Oxygen crisis during SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The product was launched by the Hon'ble PM and included in DBT-BIRAC's book inaugurated by the Hon'ble Science Minister in a book showcasing 75 innovations under 75 years of India. Participants were encouraged to think something different from the traditional route of career development i.e., searching jobs and working for others. Hope this will help in value creation.
