Dr. S. Krishnaveni illustriously mentioned the framework for the identification of the research proposal topic and the funding agency, and suggested institutions to go through rules, regulations, and guidelines before the submission instead of vain efforts in research without research strategies. Educational institutions should adhere to academic eligibility for the utilization of funding agencies before the screening of proposals. She instructed that researchers should specify the nature and objective of minor and major research in the proposal.
She stated the importance of a literature search related to a specific research topic to realize the lacunae between the past and present research nature, ideas, and methodologies. She suggested the availability of a funding agency is the essence of the research framework while approaching a funding agency with research proposal.
Dr. Krishnaveni also stated the remarkable importance of research key indicators like Introduction, Research History, Problem Statement, Objectives; Research Methodologies, Review, Budget, and Outcome and the importance of quality Curriculum Vitae of a researcher with effective research-centric temperament. She advised the educational institutions to have collaborative activities with funding agencies for the holistic development of the institutions,
She highlighted the importance of Interdisciplinary and Multidisciplinary oriented research for the contemporary requirement in the research field.

She encouraged the faculty members to publish research papers in qualitative journals like Scopus and Web of Science.
Dr. Krishnaveni also stated to take the optimum utilization of the local and state government, NGOs, national, international and other funding agencies like the Building Material Technology Promotion Council (BMTPC), Ministry of Education, Ministry of Non-conventional Energy Sources, Ministry of Science and Technology as the government recognized bodies and Vision Group on Science and Technology (VGST) as the state- recognized agency for the research proposals.
She concluded her intellectual deliberation with the demonstration on “Applying for the Funding Agency of VGST” and instructed the institution to work effectively to establish the institution’s research wings for quality education.
