CSIR-Human Resource Development Centre signs MoUs with four Sector Skill Councils

New Delhi: In a significant move toward advancing skill development in India, the CSIR-Human Resource Development Centre (CSIR-HRDC), based in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, has entered into collaborative agreements with four Sector Skill Councils (SSCs). These councils include the Agriculture Skill Council of India (ASCI), Capital Goods & Strategic Skill Council (CGSSC), Hydrocarbon Sector Skill Council (HSSC), and Life Sciences Sector Skill Development Council (LSSSDC).

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) aims to foster cooperation between CSIR and the Indian industry, creating an environment conducive to enhancing employability and entrepreneurial opportunities for the country’s youth.

The CSIR has been actively engaged in skill development since the launch of its “CSIR Integrated Skill Initiative” in 2016. This national-level program seeks to equip individuals, ranging from school dropouts to graduates and doctorates, with essential technological skills. CSIR has successfully trained over 1.50 lakh individuals through 4500+ skill-based training programs, addressing the critical need for technical expertise in the face of advancing technology. The collaboration with SSCs is expected to further strengthen the skill ecosystem by facilitating joint programs, knowledge exchange, and shared services, ultimately empowering Indian youth to excel in the global job market.
