Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) has tied up with four National Institutes of Technology (NITs) at Kurukshetra, Jalandhar, Srinagar and Hamirpur for sharing expertise, domain knowledge and available facilities in agreed areas for research and development.


A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed in this regard here today. This will facilitate exchange of staff and students towards co-supervision of undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD thesis. This will also help in pursuing joint research programmes, including externally funded schemes and consultancy activities.


The CSIO, a constituent unit of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), is a national laboratory dedicated to research, design and development of scientific and industrial instruments. It is a multi-disciplinary and multi-dimensional apex industrial research and development organisation in the country to stimulate growth of the instruments industry in India.


National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are premier academic institutes of national importance established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development.


Prof RK Sinha, Director, CSIO, signed the MoU with Dr Satish Kumar, Director, NIT, Kurukshetra; Prof Lalit Kumar Awasthi, Director, NIT, Jalandhar; Prof Rakesh Sehgal, Director, NIT, Srinagar; and Dr Raman Parti, Dean (Research and Consultancy), NIT, Hamirpur.


Prof Sinha said collaboration with NITs played an important role in building a globally competent academic and research system to further fostering advancement in teaching, learning and research.


Dr Satish Kumar said both students and faculty of the NIT would gain from the initiative.
