Gujarat Integrated Bio Network (GIBioN)

Philosophy

Gujarat Integrated Bio NetworkThe state is conscious to the fact that the development of competitive world class skilled and trained manpower is one of the bottle-necks for the development of Biotechnology in the state. This effort of formation of a network of Biotechnology academia & research; integrated for excellence; is an effort to aver the commitment of the state towards the strategy to develop world class manpower as also echoed vide sections 2.3.1.2 and 2.3.1.5 of the Biotechnology Incentive Policy unveiled by the state government in April, 2007. The effort is also coherent to the Policy Recommendations vide 12.8.1 – 4 and vide section 2.1.5 of the Strategic Roadmap; both part of the Biotechnology Development Blueprint developed by this organization.

The state has established a network; baptized as Gujarat Integrated Bio Network [GIBioN]; to web the Biotechnology academia as also the Biotechnology Research Fraternity of the state;along with joint efforts of Microbiology Study Circle, J. & J. College of Science, Nadiad in December 2005. It may also be mentioned that the State level competitions organized by the later were taken over by this organization under the banner of this newly formed network.

Objectives

GIBioN aims towards generation of awareness related to Biotechnology Issues, honing the skills of students, generate enthusiasm in the students of the state pursuing pure aspects of life sciences and create an instinct of competitive excellence as also the higher virtue of knowledge sharing, co-operation & collaboration and Networking.

Encouraging Excellence

To encourage the values of Excellence and a sense of positive competition, it was conceptualized that an Intra-College Competition be organized in various fields such as Seminar Presentation, Scientific Article Writing, Extempore Elocution on Scientific topics, and Drawing Biotech Scientoon [christened as BTtoon] amongst the students in final and penultimate year of graduation studying Biotechnology or/and allied subjects. GIBioN supports the colleges towards such Intra-College competitions. The winners at these Intra-College Competitions of all colleges of Gujarat, then compete at a State-level Inter-Collegiate Competitions conducted annually at different locations in the state. These State-level Inter-Collegiate Competitions are adjudged by senior teachers (mostly Post-graduate) and the candidates are mentored so that they can advance towards excellence. The winners of the competitions are awarded Gold plated medals in addition to cash prizes and their colleges are awarded trophies.
