About AcSIR :

Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) has adopted the mandate to create and train some of the best of tomorrow’s Science & Technology leaders through a combination of innovative and novel curricula, pedagogy and evaluation. AcSIR’s focus will be on imparting instruction and providing research opportunities in such areas that are not routinely taught in regular academic universities in India.

It has been set up based on a ‘Hub and the Spokes’ model where hub is responsible for centralized administrative functions. The spokes are located in the 37 laboratories and 6 units of CSIR spread along the length and breadth of India, which act as actual campuses for different subjects or areas depending on their respective specializations.

At present, the Academy has 2478 faculty members from CSIR Laboratories, 36 Adjunct faculty members, Over 3000 students enrolled in various programmes and 21 non-academic staff members.

Every year AcSIR  As a tribute to the former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) has named its two month-long summer training programme as Kalam Fellowship program.
