Sponsored Research



About US

Dr. M.G.R Educational and Research Institute is a graded autonomy institution that ranks among the best academic institutions in the country. As a leader, we are now working on several sponsored research projects. The institute's infrastructure and the wealth of our experience give it a distinct advantage. Professors, scientists, and social scientists staff of departments and research centres are highly trained and specialize in a variety of fields. Dr. M.G.R Educational and Research Institute have served a vast number of clients who have expressed great pleasure following NAAC accreditation. State and federal government bodies, public and private sector companies, and international organizations are among them. The role of the Centre for Sponsored Research (CSR) needs special mention in this context.


All sponsored projects handled by the faculty of Dr M.G.R Educational and Research Institute are promoted, facilitated, coordinated, and administered by Centre for Sponsored Research. We are pleased to announce that we have received ISO 21001:2018 Quality Certification. Dr. M.G.R Educational and Research Institute is one of India's first educational institutions to engage in promotional activities with industries, with the aim of expanding the interchange of knowledge and experience between the Institute and industries.


DrMGR ERI places a high value on sponsored research, collaborative research funded by national and international agencies, and strong industrial interaction. The institute has established modern laboratories as well as the necessary infrastructure.


Sponsored research has also emerged as an important factor in the development of infrastructure and the strengthening of facilities in some emerging areas of technology. The institute's faculty maintains strong industrial ties by taking on consulting assignments. This includes a variety of tasks such as troubleshooting, product and process development, and design checks. However apart from these activities, faculty members also run short-term company-specific training programmes. To increase industrial participation in engineering education, the institute has initiated industry-sponsored master's degree programmes.


The Centre for Sponsored Research (CSR) Unit is in charge of providing administrative support and project management for the various types of projects undertaken by the institute's faculty. The Principal Investigator (PI) of a sanctioned project is the focal person between the funding agency and CSR, as well as the project's implementation chief.


Most of the powers rest with the PI. In case of relaxations of rules, Principal Director (R&D) accords approval.

  • Distinct Hiring Process - Casual Appointments, Yearly Agreements (walk-in and shortlisting based).
  • Student assistantships are available.
  • Purchases under Projects are made faster.
  • Administrative Overheads realised through Projects are used to create a Professional Development Fund for PI/Co-PIs.


Objectives

  • To promote strong partnerships with industry in terms of collaborative research, technology transfer, and the development of skilled personnel.
  • To identify and safeguard the intellectual property.
  • To encourage technology inventions and Commercialisation
  • To disseminate selective Information and provide easy access to research, knowledge, and technology databases.
  • To establish international research and development collaborations

DEAN'S MESSAGE

- Prof. RM.Narayanan


Welcome to the website of the Centre for Sponsored Research. These pages depict the types of research projects undertaken to engage with industry and conduct fundamental and applied research, as well as the mode of operation. In addition, the Centre manages several areas of intellectual property and technology transfer. Links to the web pages of academic members who can be contacted for their expertise are also available. We are excited to collaborate with industries, academicians, and entrepreneurs to expand the knowledge and impact.


Sponsored projects are R & D projects funded by government departments and agencies, industries or other institute with a view to generate new knowledge, to develop new technology or to create new products in nation building. These programmes also help in the development of human resources in the premier areas of science and technology.
