THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Central labour commission has recommended opening of a knowledge university intended for research and preservation of traditional knowledge, said C V Ananda Bose, retired civil servant and one-man commission under the state government. He was delivering the keynote address at a webinar jointly organised by the Centre for Policy and Development Studies and the Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM) on ‘Skill development, MSMEs and entrepreneurship in the context of Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
