Substantial amount of the IoE funding has been invested in the development of research
Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) has launched 15 Centres of Excellence (CoE) as part of the ‘Institute of Eminence’ (IoE) Scheme.
These Centres will be undertaking cutting-edge research to develop next-generation technologies and create a significant impact not just in India but internationally as well.
The IoE Scheme was launched by the Government of India to empower Higher Educational Institutions to become world-class teaching and research institutions.
IIT-M had identified 68 research initiatives across 21 technology clusters in diverse fields in Phase I. Through an extensive and rigorous review process, the Institute shortlisted 15 Centres of Excellence within the IIT-M system alongside 23 Research Centres and 10 Research Projects in Phase II.
These research initiatives encompass a broad spectrum of disciplines and involve over 400 faculty members. By fostering interdisciplinary research, they facilitate collaborations that can lead to ground-breaking discoveries, innovations, and advancements in key areas including Healthcare and Assistive Technologies; Centre for Cancer Genomics and Molecular Therapeutics, among others.
The financial support through IoE will enable IIT-M faculty members to pursue ambitious research goals, undertake cutting-edge projects and attract top talent to work on ground-breaking research topics.
