Internal Resources

Project Management Cell


The Project Management cell facilitates intra and extramural project management through close-knit internal processes and policies coordinated through different stakeholders. The Cell coordinates closely with the faculty, project staff, funding agencies, and external stakeholders (Universities, Research Institutions, Industries, Start-Ups, and International organizations) to establish research collaborations. We train human resources on Scientific administration and provides critical input to strengthen research proposals submitted to us by PIs. Lastly, the Cell moderates scientific discussions with industrial/academic organizations to enhance IP licensing, technology transfers, Co-development of products, etc.
