Some of the few challenges that Naidu presented to CSIR include agricultural research and coming up with new "innovations, techniques and solutions to address the problems faced by farmers."

Some of the few challenges that Naidu presented to CSIR include agricultural research and making new "innovations, techniques and solutions to address the problems faced by farmers." He also asked them to look for solutions to cited climate change, drug resistance, pollution, epidemic and pandemic outbreaks.

Naidu said "India was ranked 3rd in the world in terms of research publications" and has made significant contributions to the world of science in space, atomic energy, ocean science, or defence research. Scientists and researchers should consistently work to enhance our position in global scientific research.

"The ultimate aim of science should be to improve people’s lives and make their lives comfortable."

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh also spoke during the 8p0ht Foundating day. He asked CSIR and all the science departments to explore S&T innovations needed in the next ten years to make India globally competitive.

He said, “We should not restrict our ambition to be best in India but be best in the world as India is blessed with the demographic dividend of youth and they can take up any challenge with the right training and motivation”.

Singh said, "the combined strength of CSIR, DBT, DST and MoES along with other science ministries can indeed transform the entire country in the next 25 years as the entire progress is going to remain heavily Technology dependant. When India turns 100, it should be a global leader ranging from Defence to Economics with strong scientific and technological inputs."
