Dr. R. C. Sharma delivered a lecture on “Application of Econometrics in Research”. 

He said that Econometrics is the application of mathematics and statistical methods to economic data and described as the branch of economics that aims to give empirical content to economic relations. More precisely, it is the quantitative analysis of actual economic phenomena based on the concurrent development of theory and observation, related by appropriate methods of inference. An influential introductory economics textbook describes econometrics as allowing economists to sift through mountains of data to extract simple relationships.

Have a killing spirit. Innovation is related to individuals; higher the risk, higher the profit. Develop a vision model by studying various business models.
