WHO WE ARE !

ANEH is a duly registered non-profit organization under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India. We are engaged in scientific research activities for higher education research students and disseminate innovative and accessible technologies across the country. In addition, we aim to foster UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) - Energy, Environment and Healthcare sectors through structured support initiatives and mechanisms. We partner with academia, industry, regulator and other key stakeholders to create a knowledge, innovation and entrepreneurial support system through our collaborative community of national and international experts and other partners.

ANEH (Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Environment and Health Care) is an informal learning and teaching platform for young researchers to enrich their knowledge through national/international research networks. We accelerate gender equality in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths, and Medicine (STEMM) by committing ourselves to remove the obstacles faced by women. Notably, at significant career development and progression points, including the transition from a PhD into a sustainable academic career. We tend to familiarize science with seminars, course modules, conferences, workshops, symposiums, etc., across the country (both online and offline). Our ANEH-TRANS (Transforming Rural Aspirants & Nurturing Skills) team is dedicated to identifying rural students and supporting their research career development by offering fellowship and awards.

We have created a technologically literate workforce by organizing seminars, conferences, workshops, symposiums, etc., across the country (both online and offline) over three years. Also, we are offering our resources to the clients to demonstrate outreach activities/workshops (online and offline) for government and charity-funded projects. Our service includes event planning, attendee engagement, costing, strategic meetings management, materials analysis support, and social media coverage.

The origin of our journey started in 2018 with the idea of creating a scientific platform that embraces innovation and inclusive. The platform enabled national and international like-minded Think tanks under one roof to impart their knowledge to rural Indian students. As a result, we had organized our first two-days international conference, “ANEH-2018”, at KSR Educational Institutions in 2018. More than 1000 delegates attended the event, primarily women participants in large number. The grand success of this event encouraged us to expand the conference structure to multiple symposia with virtual lectures (webinar). Based on the feedback and experience, we demonstrated our second international conference, “ANEH-2019”, at Bishop Heber College. The active participation of keynote and invited speakers from India and premier global institutions brought high visibility to this event. In addition, the speakers shared research fellowships and vacancies available in their group, which benefited the masters and research students by getting aware of the research opportunity. The above events were jointly organized with Swansea University, UK, and accelerated UK-India joint initiatives.

Most rural-based institutions don’t have cutting edge types of equipment in nanoscience and technology. It created a more significant gap between the instrumentation and analytical skills. In this perspective, in August 2019, we conducted a Hands-on Experience Workshop in collaboration with KSR-GNRN. It successfully imparted needed skills and knowledge of handling cutting-edge materials characterization tools to rural students. Surprisingly various materials based industries appreciated and approached us to conduct many such events in future.

The unprecedented COVID-lockdown is transforming our learning platform from conventional classrooms to virtual meeting rooms. Our previous webinar experiences in international conferences helped us deliver virtual learning modules. Based on this experience, we have conducted “Foundation and Advanced Courses 2020 on Materials Synthesis and Experimental Techniques: Bulk to Nano” during September 2020. This course was organized for more than a month (2-3 hrs per day) by engaging students with the following activities: lectures, lab tour, online exams, assignments, quizzes, proposal designing, group discussion and networking. It enthralled students in the midst of a pandemic to revive their research knowledge and activities. Overall feedback of the participants has confirmed the event brought them back to the physical classroom environment.

Creating awareness of science-based evidence to the public is our foremost duty to protect them from the hoax, pseudoscience, bogus therapies and impact of health misinformation. In this context, we have organized “Virtual Awareness Workshop on COVID-19 Treatment and Fundamental Science of Vaccination” during May 2021. This event focused on creating awareness of the benefits and importance of the COVID vaccine and explaining the COVID treatment protocol. In addition, we enabled frontline workers of COVID-19 treatment and eminent scientists across the globe to share their scientific knowledge through the event. Thus, it successfully reduced the myths and vaccination hesitancy among the public

We welcome you to join hands to establish a sustainable community, inclusive environment for the needy and promote capacity building in higher education research. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss both your and our ambitions with you.
