Thematic Research Clusters

IISc places special emphasis on inter-disciplinary research. Thematic research clusters represent a growing culture of faculty members cutting across departments and divisions collaborating on contemporary inter-disciplinary themes. The  goal of a research cluster is to  pursue collaborative research with a shared vision,  conduct regular technical meetings, organize focussed workshops,  identify and take up high impact initiatives at national and international scale, and secure large grants.  Here is an expanding  list of such clusters.
