Himalayan Sustainability: A Powerful and Unifying Research Theme
Nested in the Mid Himalayas and enriched by an ever expanding research capital, be it in the spectrum of Sciences, Engineering or Management, Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences has developed intrinsic strengths to address the myriad issues that afflict the Himalayan Region. With a fragile eco-system and growing industrialization-exploitation, the Himalayan ecosystem is undergoing tremendous strain; cloud bursts in Ladakh, and Uttrakhand and the recent devastation due to the earthquake in Nepal stand testimony. Shoolini’s strategic location and growing expertise in the fields of research provides a unique opportunity for it to provide strategic direction and scientific and/or technological solutions to harness the wealth in an eco-friendly manner. It is in keeping with these strengths that the International Center for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), Kathmandu has welcomed Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences as a Fellow of the Consortium of Himalayan Universities. At the same time, University have also partnered with Lanzou University, China, located in the far east of the Himalayan Mountain Range. Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences has thus laid the foundation of giving back to nature and mankind.
