Education is not necessarily a central subject, it is a federal structure. Central and state education system should associate in this national movement called "KAMP".

One of the goals of CSIR-NISTADS is to provide inputs to policymakers for formulating the policy on Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Knowledge and Awareness Mapping Platform (KAMP) is one of such initiatives of CSIR-NISTADS under which the young students will be mapped for their ingenuity and the best ones will be nurtured through various programs. The analyses of the mapping data would be used to create inputs for S&T policy so as new generation of scientific leaders are produced in the country.

KAMP is one of the innovative initiatives for cognizance evaluation, which is expected to provide an advisory to the students and parents at an appropriate age. I feel that the outcome of KAMP exercise in terms of career choices is going to transform the society. It is going to bring multifold dividend to the society by developing happy minds and joyful working. The trustful advisory of KAMP will be able to add more number of youths with critical thinking and creative minds and thus building a new leadership for future society.

In the 21st century, what is it that differentiates one educational organistion from another? It is the innate ability of the organization to initiate and mentor those skills so relevant to the times, namely scientific thinking, creativity, critical thought processes and along with this a belief in culture and humanity. KAMP through the assessments planned has motivated young adults in all sectors of school education private and public to think along these lines. It is hoped that this initiative will be valued and KAMP will grow in the education sphere to create more and more challenges for the young school goer who will subsequently be motivated to face and master the 21st century skills with confidence.
