City Desk :
With an aim to bring the critical and empirical analysis on the challenging contemporary issues facing the nation, a new platform comprising progressive and eminent academics has been launched with wide range of disciplines.
Titled as "Education Research and Development Forum", this vast network of academics would seek to explore and bring in fresh perspectives, based on solid academic research, as regards to ways to address fourth industrial revolution, mordenization of agriculture and a host of contemporary issues, reports BSS.
In an era of disinformation coupled with a first changing geo political landscape, members under this network would remain focused on presenting proper research before the policymakers, added the speakers at the launching event held on Saturday at the National Press Club here. Professor Md. Sazzad Hossain, a member of Bangladesh University Grants Commission (UGC), and Professor Mohammad Badruzzaman Bhuiyan, Treasurer of Barisal University have been made president and secretary of the this network.
Anchored on the values laid out by the founding father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rhaman, a key objective of this network is also to counter the ceaseless propaganda peddled by the anti liberation and anti-national forces to take the country back into the pit of chaos and misrule, the speakers added.
