High Impact Scientific Network Programme


CEFIPRA has been traditionally associated with bridging of individual scientists of two countries in collaborative mode. After 27 years, a rich plethora of scientists and scientific group are well networked. In order to harvest the strength of the network and as per the directive of the Governing Body, CEFIPRA launched High Impact Scientific Research Network Programme in 2014 in all the areas of interest in Science & Technology between India and France with special emphasis on the following areas:


  1. )    Optics
  2. )    Nano sciences
  3. )    Cold atoms
  4. )    Synchrotron Science
  5. )    Computer Science & Bio-bioinformatics
  6. )    Energy storage devices
  7. )    Metabolic disorder
  8. )    Infectious diseases

Proposals were received for consideration and two proposals in the area of High Energy Physics and Health Sciences have been supported.
