IndiaBioscience (IBS), a non-profit initiative, occupies a unique niche in the ecosystem of life sciences in India, serving as an excellent platform for exchange of ideas on different matters related to life sciences research and education. The IBS community includes scientists, educators and students at varying stages of their careers. IBS not only disseminates the scientific achievements of our researchers, but also highlights their efforts at public outreach and involvement in science education. Resources at IBS include a booklet on career opportunities, a space for science communicators to share their experiences, and opportunities for networking amongst young investigators (YIs) and postdoctoral fellows (PDFs). By engaging with academia and government along with the large network of people including educators and industry professionals that IBS has engaged with over a decade, it has now reached a stage where it can be used as an ideal forum for discussions on matters related to science policy. This is a report on discussion sessions during the Young Investigators’ Meeting that was held in Thiruvananthapuram from 5 to 8 March 2018.
