MYRA to host workshop series on making Mysuru a research hub

March 16, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: Mysuru is well-known for its academic strength and MYRA School of Business is keen to support research initiatives that will help make the city a hub for post-pandemic research. 

In May this year, MYRA will launch a workshop series tentatively-titled “Making Mysuru a Research Hub” that will be open to interested members of the public keen in research. The aim of the series would be to provide a friendly setting, where participants can discuss topics of interest, share ideas, network with like-minded peers, and get some structured guidance from MYRA’s in-house faculty experts.

MYRA recently hosted a workshop titled “Building a Research Mindset” by Dr. Prakash K. Nair, Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Leadership at MYRA.  Dr. Nair is an enthusiastic educator and an award-winning researcher who also serves as the Associate Dean for Academics at MYRA. 

He currently teaches courses on Organisational Behaviour and Psychology, Leadership and Management, and Design Thinking. He also mentors Ph.D students. 

Rationale for the programme

While India has an enormous talent and an untapped potential for research that is waiting to be unleashed, we lag behind in our research output in terms of peer reviewed publications, patents, and overall R&D. Many Indians want to pursue scholarly research; however, our researchers face many challenges in terms of resources and support — including academic facilities, financial resources, and guidance on how to do sound scientific research.

Academic institutions need to step up to fill this void by nurturing this talent  and providing resources and support for our budding scholars. The focus of the workshop was how scientific research can help solve social, environmental, and business problems, a deep-dive into scientific research process and an overview of both quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection.

Some of the key takeaways from the session are identifying and defining the problem or opportunity for research, proposing and testing hypotheses, reviewing literature, selecting the right methodology, analysing data and drawing conclusions, providing recommendations to practice and for future research and citing and referencing in social science research.
