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.

The network will therefore help:
  • Access communication materials provided by Vigyan Prasar free of cost or at attractive discounts (depending on availability).
  • Exchange view and ideas, express opinions and gain insight (s) into a vast array of activities of other VIPNET clubs through the national level programmes/ events/workshops organized for VIPNET clubs.
  • Participate in programmes including trainings and campaigns organised by Vigyan Prasar.
  • Get together with other science clubs at the regional level to form cluster to organize such programmes as trainings, workshops, jathas, lecture-cum-demonstrations etc. for which Vigyan Prasar could provide assistance in the form of resource persons, course materials and kits, and other necessary inputs- in response to a proposal for specific activities.
  • Get national exposure and recognition through the VP Web page on the Internet. Work as local activity centers of Club with Vigyan Prasar.

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.
