Award for NCIS Associate Member Dr Parashram Patil (India)

Congratulations to one of our members from Asia, Dr. Parashram Jakappa Patil, who has been awarded a Young Scientist Award by the Trans Asian /Indo-Mongolian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Dr Patil is the son of a poor cashew farmer in a remote village in Maharashtra, and his parents have sold land in order to meet his educational expenses; in spite of these hurdles he has continued his education and gained his Ph.D. from Shivaji University, Kolhapur. He is the first Ph.D. holder in his region and one of the youngest Ph.D. holders in India. The problems he has seen and experienced since his childhood have provided the basis for his Ph.D. work on “Problems and Prospects of the Cashew Nut Industry of the Kolhapur District.”
Dr Patil is the founder and chairman of The Institute for Natural Resources, Kolhapur and has been honoured with many awards, such as Best Citizens of India Award 2015 by the International Publishing House; Emerging Young Scholar in South Asia by TERI (a United Nations research centre for South Asia on Sustainable Development); a Departmental Research Fellowship from Shivaji University, Kolhapur; and a Baharat Jyoti Award from the India International Friendship Society, for his outstanding achievements and fight in life will motivate to others.
