Saikat Batabyal

Young Policy Professional



Saikat is a Policy Fellow working for Centre-State and Inter-ministerial coordination for the purpose of strengthening the Centre-state and Inter-ministerial partnerships and collaboration in STI related areas to the Government of India in association with the Department of Science and Technology, GoI, New Delhi and DST Centre for Policy Research, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. As a part of the STIP Secretariat GoI, he is actively part of intra-departmental coordination mechanism in place to effectively coordinate and create synergy in the division of National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) of DST and connect them with various line ministries and States for STI policy related work.

Saikat has completed his B.Sc. & M.Sc. in Mathematics from Visva Bharati Central University, West Bengal, India. He was posted as visiting researcher at the Department of Mathematics, Jacobs University of Bremen, Germany. He was appointed as senior scientist at the Department of Mathematics, Alpen Adria University, Klagenfurt, Austria. He submitted his Ph.D. thesis at SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur, Tamil Nadu, India.
