BHUBANESWAR:   There is no dearth of talent and scope for researchers in science and technology in Odisha. It is essential to project the education and research based institutions of the State in the international forum so that the deserving candidates get their due recognition, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said here on Friday.

Addressing a ceremony organised by Odisha Vigyan Academy (OVA), Naveen said recent developments in science and technology should be effectively utilised to eliminate issues in agriculture, health, education, power generation and environment protection.
