CoEs will put the NEP 2020 vision of interdisciplinary research in sustainable cities, health, and agriculture into action. As a result, leading academic institutions will be better able to translate research into cutting-edge technology and replicate it into marketable problem-solving for a nation with our size and diversity.

Apps like Smart Classrooms, Precision Farming, Intelligent Transport Systems, and Healthcare are just a few of the topics covered in the labs.
