To motivate talented youths to take up research and development, government has decided to invite Nobel Prize winners from across the world, a day before the inauguration of the next Vibrant Global Summit.

According to Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, around 12 to 15 Nobel Prize winners will be invited by the government to come to the state and talk about their research, for which they received the prestigious honour.

The three-day summit will kickstart on January 10, 2017, at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar. Just like the previous edition in 2015, Prime Minister Modi would inaugurate the biennial summit this time too, said Rupani.

"On January 9, we have planned to invite 12 to 15 Nobel Prize winners of Chemistry, Physics and Medicine field to interact with people here. We have also planned to exhibit their research and inventions at Science City here, so that people can understand their work and get motivated," he said.

"The entire exhibition would run for five weeks. We will also invite Indian scientists to visit the exhibition and be a part of our endeavour to spread awareness about these subjects," Rupani said in his inaugural address at 'Pharmac India-2016', an exhibition of pharmaceutical industry.
