RVP Awards: Honoring Excellence in Indian Science&Technology



  Nov 18, 2023

The New 'Rashtriya Vigyan Puraskar' Awards Framework



Introduction to RVP:

The 'Rashtriya Vigyan Puraskar' (RVP) is a revamped award system in India aimed at recognizing excellence in science and technology across various domains. It reflects a modern understanding of scientific practice and strives to represent the aspirations of the scientific community.

Benefits of RVP:

The RVP awards aim to:

Celebrate a broader range of scientific achievements, including technology-led innovations.

Foster collaborative and cross-disciplinary research by including team awards.

Promote gender equity and inclusivity by not having an age limit on most categories.

Acknowledge Indian-origin scientists abroad, recognizing India’s global scientific impact.

Addressing the Criticisms:

Critiques of the RVP system suggest:

The need for clear criteria that distinguish exceptional contributions from standard scientific responsibilities.

Inclusion of separate categories or consideration for teaching, mentoring, and public engagement.

Reevaluation of age limits to ensure gender parity, potentially allowing for personal circumstances to extend eligibility.

Potential Blueprint for Recognition:

To enhance the RVP framework:

The selection process should be transparent, adhere to timelines, and include diverse, balanced committees.

A proactive approach should be taken to ensure socioeconomic and demographic diversity among awardees.

Continuous evaluation of the awards' impact on science and society should be conducted to refine and improve the system.

The RVP could serve as a potential blueprint for an expansive and inclusive award system that can inspire scientific ecosystems globally.
