About the Extension and Training Division

The Division of Extension & Training (PET) of NIN carries out multifarious activities including Action research and Translational research. Usage of appropriate health and nutrition communication models and paradigms and qualitative research methods form the crux of the research here. Division's other activities include Massive community-based extension programmes involving interpersonal communication methods and participation in science exhibitions; effective usage of social media; development and deployment of interactive ICT tools, publication of informative books & periodicals on nutritional themes in different languages and conducting adhoc training programmes. Media & Public Relations activities for optimum dissemination of nutrition information among masses and maintenance of large museum for the benefit of visitors are some other priority areas of the division.
