Research projects of the institute

As per the senate legislation of JU, Institutes are expected to generate research fund in sustainable manner to ensure their existence. Accordingly, the institute has been developing several project proposals together with other national and international partners. Most of these proposals are submitted to several funding organizations. In Table 3 below, you can find some of the projects running by the academic staff affiliated to IICoR.
