VIPNET stands for Vigyan Prasar NETwork of Science clubs. The VIPNET Programme was initiated nationwide in the year 1998 to reach out and engage with science clubs and organization working in the field of Science; willing to coordinate with Vigyan Prasar for a concerted outcome.
An active and fully functional science club working in any part of the country without any discrimination based on caste, creed, ideology, religion or language, can be a part of VIPNET by simply registering with VIPNET for affiliation. The clubs will maintain their own identity and carry out programmes as per their convenience. Only the statement saying “Affiliated to VIPNET” must be mentioned in the club brochure or signboard or other literature they produce. No registration or affiliation fee will be charged for enrolling with VIPNET.
In the year 2014-15 Vigyan Prasar started a process of re-registration to add further value to the dynamics of engagement with clubs already registered. More than 2500 clubs re-registered in this process and have validated the review. Vigyan Prasar will further rationalize this engagement to strengthen the outcomes of the network. You are welcome to join the efforts.
