Due to stressed relationship between basic and applied research, the linking to the “think global, act local” is always a challenge in scientific research. Similarly, in innovation field the dynamic pivots around both ‘research for innovation’ and ‘research on innovation’. Moreover, Innovation which often happens outside academic environment through amalgamation of inventive thinking and creative experimentation, would be required to nurture by providing an organized research eco-system.
ADAMAS University, Kolkata which has the large base of highly talented students both under-graduate (UG) and post-graduate (PG), research scholars and knowledgeable faculty members, is now poised for launching the “Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI)” under the leadership and guidance of Founder Chancellor Professor Samit Ray at its ADAMAS Knowledge City (AKC), Barasat campus. At CRI, Barasat both research and innovation would be encouraged and nurtured by providing and facilitating necessary mentoring and infrastructural facilities to its UG & PG students, researchers as well as other innovators so that it could be taken to the next level and at a greater height for serving better to the society in the widest sence.
The CRI, Barasat will be led by Dr A Mukhopadhaya, Ex-Advisor, Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi as Chairman and Professor Chiranjib Chakrabartty as Director of the Centre.
