AlumNode Funding 2019/2020
Pankaj Baranwal and his team collaborated with the Bal Vikas Montessori School, a community-run school in India to find out the effects, impact and feasibility of introducing interactive e-learning courses in the curriculum at elementary level of education.
"Doing good, valuable and impactful research requires a lot of time, effort and dedication. By removing financial constraints and providing constant mentoring and feedback, AlumNode has provided a sweet spot for young researchers like me where we can focus on doing quality, meaningful research instead of worrying about the financial constraints or not having anyone to talk to about our progress."
The first round of AlumNode Project Funding ended in September 2020. Our alumni organized amazing projects based on their research fields or even beyond, reaching from workshops on "Mental Health in Academia" to the development of a device for "Animal Tracking".
