Prabhu Goel Research Centre
Computer & Internet Security
The vision of the Centre is to become the nodal R&D centre
in the Country for all aspects of computer security and to
educate various governmental and non-governmental
organizations on the security issues and help them in this
SIDBI Innovation & Incubation Centre
The Centre has been set up in collaboration with Small
Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) to foster
innovation, research and entrepreneurial activities in
technology based areas. SIIC provides a platform to convert
innovative ideas into commercially viable products.
Earthquake Engineering (NICEE)
NICEE hosted at the Institute is intended to collect and
maintain information resources on Earthquake Engineering
and make these available to the interested professionals,
researchers, academicians and others with a view to
mitigate earthquake disasters in India.
The Institute shall draw specific short and long term training
programmes for capacity building for officers of The
Archaeological Survey of India in the application of modern
technology in archaeology.
Media Lab Asia
Media Lab Asia restructured having interest in the areas of
technological innovation and original research work which
should have definite and meaningful outcome to help to
alleviate the living standard of poor masses worldwide.
Indo–US Center for Research Excellence
in Fabrionics
The Center is a consortium of Indian researchers from IITK,
IITKgp, BESU and CMRI collaborating with UIUC, UCI and
Northwestern in the science, technology and selected
applications of advanced fabrication.
Indo-US joint Center on Biomaterials for
health care: Biomaterials as well as their applications
in artificial organs are widely recognized as an emerging
area. Recent developments in the field testify to a significant
progress in our attempts to develop new biomaterials. In this
regard, the Institute has received a grant for establishment
of the Center.
ISRO-IIT Kanpur Space Technology Cell
