Abstract: Financial support has been provided to Indian institutions including universities, R&D institutions, institutions of national importance and colleges by Human Resource Development Group (HRDG) of CSIR to promote interaction and knowledge sharing through organization of conferences. During 2003-04 to 2005-06, universities organized maximum conferences (593, 40.4%), followed by R & D Institutions (364, 24.8%), colleges (264, 18.0%), scientific societies (127, 8.6%) and institutions of national importance (121, 8.2%). Maximum conferences per institution, however, were organized by institutions of national importance followed by universities, R&D institutions and colleges. A positive correlation was noted between the number of universities/institutions of national importance and conferences organized, whereas, a negative correlation was observed for R&D institutions/colleges and conferences organized. Institutions of national importance and deemed universities played a proactive role in promoting knowledge sharing (in terms of conferences organized) in engineering sciences, and central & state universities, R&D institutions, colleges, scientific societies in life sciences.
