Cabinet nod for CSIR Academy

17 June 2010

NEW DELHI: The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is all set to start an Academy that will enable it award post-graduate and doctoral degrees from this year without spending a single paisa on capital expenditure.

The Union Cabinet, at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today, approved the CSIR proposal to set up an Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR).

Currently, scientists pursuing research in any of the 37 laboratories of CSIR across the country have to register themselves at different universities.

Once the AcSIR is set up, it would enable registration of such researchers. In addition, the academy will also award post-graduate degrees.

“The Academy will primarily focus on research and imparting training in areas that are not ordinarily provided by the existing universities in India,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni told reporters while briefing on the Cabinet meeting.
