Academy of Scientific & Innovative Research (AcSIR)

Established in 2011 as an ‘Institution of National Importance’ (interim operations started in June, 2010), the Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) has adopted the mandate to create and train some of the best of tomorrow’s Science & Technology leaders through a combination of innovative and novel curricula, pedagogy and evaluation. AcSIR’s focus will be on imparting instruction and providing research opportunities in such areas that are not routinely taught in regular academic universities in India.

It has been set up based on a ‘Hub and the Spokes’ model where hub is responsible for centralized administrative functions. The spokes are located in the 37 laboratories and 6 units of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) spread along the length and breadth of India, which act as actual campuses for different subjects or areas depending on their respective specializations.

Mission of AcSIR

The mission of the Academy is to create highest quality personnel with cross-disciplinary knowledge, aiming to provide leaders in the field of science and technology.

  • Nurture a research-propelled, technology-enabled, industry-linked, socially conscious higher education platform
  • Achieve a seamless integration of intellectual strengths with current market needs with a people centric focus
  • Develop niche capability required to bolster research efforts in futuristic science
  • Provide the opportunity to work on the frontier and contemporaneously challenging areas for nurturing innovation 

Objectives of AcSIR

  • Disseminate advanced knowledge in science and technology, by providing teaching and research facilities in emerging and futuristic areas of inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary areas—whether the focus is natural sciences, life sciences, mathematical and computational sciences, medical sciences, engineering, applied art, humanities, social sciences, law relating to these areas
  • Adopt measures for innovations in teaching and learning processes
  • Create an ambience for learning and scholarship in advanced science and technology instead of exclusively focusing on marks or grades
  • Educate and train manpower in scientific and technological fields; science 2.0 e-enabled cloud environment
  • Establish linkages with industries in India and outside India for the promotion of science and technology
  • Collaborate, in appropriate areas in the field of science and technology, with reputed universities and institutions in India and outside India
  • Promote research in science and technology having a bearing on social, economic, cultural, and intellectual, welfare of the people
  • Organize and undertake extramural studies, training and extension services

AcSIR Innovation

AcSIR seeks to bring about a paradigm shift in mindset by

  • Increasing the baisc Science component in Engineering curriculum
  • Catalzying Engineering mindset in students of Life Sciences/ Facilitating Translational Research in Life Science
  • Mimicking Life Science in Machines to create Bioinspired Device

AcSIR offers full flexibility to students to think and work beyond disciplines. Robust ICT Infrastructure allows seamless access to intellect and resources of CSIR Labs.

Why AcSIR?

AcSIR offers several academic programmes such as Doctoral, Masters, Post graduate Diplomas, etc. To see a complete list of academic programmes offered, click here. 

The Science of tomorrow will be integrative and trans-disciplinary. AcSIR provides opportunity to work in the frontier and trans-disciplinary areas of Natural Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical and Information Sciences, Medical Sciences, Engineering and attract the best of the young minds.
