Now, we want to focus on small & medium enterprises: Samir K Brahmachari, CSIR

17 September 2012

The country’s largest laboratory cluster – the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), with 38 labs across the country under its fold — is gearing up for its 70th birthday this week. It’s opening a new lab just across the one inaugurated by Jawaharlal Nehru back in the 1950s. The last time CSIR started a lab was a quarter century back. Besides the new lab that will focus on genomics research, this year marks a transformation that CSIR has never seen before. It has new focus areas, Medium Small & Micro Enterprises (MSME), CSIR is ready to undertake commercially-oriented research and plans to incubate and spin-off companies. “We are moving beyond Bharat Sarkar”, says an impassioned Samir K Brahmachari, director-general, CSIR, in a reference to its past. In an interview with Shelley Singh, Brahmachari talks about CSIR’s future.
