Faculty Development Programmes in EDP

All the programmes were directed by Mr. G. Sudarshan, and coordinated by Mr. N. Srinivasa Rao.

One of the FDPs, a two-week intervention, was conducted at the Institute campus in Hyderabad, during 3-15 July 2017. As part of the programme, visits were arranged for the trainees to the Rural Technology Park at NIRD, Hyderabad; LBI at ni-msme; and Indian Institute of Millet Research, Hyderabad.
