A total of 25 Indian students along with 25 Russian students had participated in the project oriented educational program which was hosted by Russia's SIRIUS from November 28 to December 8, said NITI Aayog.
All 50 Russian and Indian students shared best contemporary innovation practices with each other under various categories: IT & Data Analysis, Clean Energy, Biotech, Remote Earth Sensing and Drones & Robotics. Under 'IT & Data Analysis', students created a classification of farmland using satellite data and neural network for effective management of crop land.
