Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata
Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER)-Kolkata was established in 2006 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India.
The central theme of the IISER Kolkata is to integrate education with research so that undergraduate teaching as well as doctoral and postdoctoral research work can be carried out in symbiosis. It is fostering a new culture of innovation through interactive learning methods, borderless course curricula.
Indeed the learning experiences at IISER-Kolkata culminate the interdisciplinary research aptitude and excite out-of-the-box thinking, those obliterate boundaries between, for example, Biology and Earth Science and basic areas of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. This holistic approach to science education of IISER is in true consonance with the age-old Indian tradition. The mandates of IISER-Kolkata thus fit very well in relation with the activities in the area of natural sciences at Undergraduate, PhD and Post Doctoral research levels.
