Joining the inaugural ceremony of the training programme from Bengaluru, Director of Institute of Social and Economic Change Madheswaran S. addressed 75 students and research scholars who had signed into the online session and said: “Usage of econometric tool in social sciences research, particularly in economics, was imperative to produce qualitative research, understand this complex economy and address the typical problems that we are facing day-to-day.”

Vice-Chancellor of Karnatak University T.M. Bhaskar presided over the online inaugural.

The online training programme would be run daily for two hours till April 14 and resource persons from different universities and institutions will conduct online interactive sessions, Chairman of the Department of Economics R.R. Biradar told The Hindu.
