The  Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE, Indian Institute of Science) houses a state-of-the-art national facility for nanofabrication, established in 2011, with support mainly from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), GoI, and complementary support  from  DST and DRDO. In addition to being the “Centre” for doctoral research work carried out by more than two hundred Institute students, our Centre also hosts the Indian Nanoelectronics Users Program (INUP), funded by MeitY, through which our sophisticated facilities are made available to academic researchers from around the country. INUP has been a very popular and successful program, with thousands of researchers from about 450 academic institutions are benefiting from it.

It has always been the goal to make CeNSE facilities available to industry and to work in collaboration with industry. For example, CeNSE has taken the unique initiative of establishing an Industry Affiliate Program, through which established Indian and Multinational companies such as Centum Electronics, Unilever, SanDisk, Bharat Electronics, and L&T work in partnership with CeNSE. Encouraged by the experience, CeNSE is now very keen to become, and be a part of, the acclaimed high-tech start-up ecosystem in the Bengaluru region. Indeed, several notable start-ups have been seeded by CeNSE faculty and alumni.  It is our mission to develop a program through which high-tech entrepreneurs make CeNSE part of “their laboratory”.

Benefits of attending NSNST-2018: Projects of mutual interest in purview of Make in India, and Startup India may be undertaken at CeNSE for successful execution. CeNSE offers training to industry participants in cleanroom and characterization facilities at nominal rates.

We look forward to meeting you at CeNSE in June this year.
