National and international seminars

In order to provide an opportunity for scholars to express their views and interact with other scholars, ICPR organizes both national and international seminars every year on a variety of themes and topics in philosophy and interdisciplinary studies. It also gives grant to philosophy departments of Indian universities and research institutions to organize seminars/symposia/ workshops/dialogues etc. The Council has linked up its publication programmes with the seminars in such a manner that all important papers presented can be published by the Council, if found suitable. It may be mentioned that some of the very outstanding papers of the seminars are published in the Council’s journal viz., JICPR. Every year the Council receives a large number of requests from the universities, research organizations for partial assistance for organizing seminars and ICPR supports 25 to 50 such seminars annually.
