“Research, with its many facets, is the driver of vibrant human progress. At the Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence, our vision is to create new knowledge and undertake creative expressions of the human spirit. Though we are a multidisciplinary research-focused university, academically organised around four distinct schools, we also lay strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity for quality research.

Active and meaningful collaborations are the keys to research successes in today's strongly connected world. At SNIoE, a combined Research and Partnerships in one office, underlines the importance we place on collaborations as a key enabler. These could be academic, industrial, societal, national, and/or international. The Research and Partnerships office also lays great emphasis on promoting collaborations within the University.

Stepping into our second decade, recognized as an Institution of Eminence, we have held university-wide discussions to collectively identify the focus of future research. This has resulted in the emergence of common research themes across all Schools.

  • Environment
  • Cognition & Behavior
  • Data & Computation and
  • Energy

Other identified interschool themes for engagement include Materials, Computational Science and Engineering, Biology, Emerging Economies, Entrepreneurial Leadership, Digital Transformation, Analytics, and Organizational Performance.

There exists a strong supporting ecosystem, including state-of-the-art laboratory spaces, post-doctoral fellows and research scholars, research promotion through start-up/seed funds, professional development assistance, consumable grants, fellowships to research scholars, travel support, etc. Around 30 MoUs with reputed institutions of the world provide for meaningful collaborations and building relationships to enhance research capabilities. Many new schemes are being continuously introduced to facilitate faculty in their research pursuits.

As Dean, I welcome and encourage our existing and prospective students and faculty, to explore the research avenues available at the Shiv Nadar IoE.
