Young Investigator Talks

Young Investigator Talks (YIT) is an initiative of the Department of Chemical Engineering & Technology, IIT (BHU) Varanasi, to open a window for students to interact with Young Researchers working abroad and within the country.

Join the talks and enjoy science! The usual timing of this Weekly Talk Series will be every Friday, 4:00 - 5:00 PM IST.
