This is indeed a research age. In an era where innovation drives competition, development and national prosperity, and where social, economic, cultural, environmental and political challenges are increasingly diffused across geographical borders, it has never been more critical for research to respond—and lead—in a global vein. We only need to look around us and the technologies we use and rely on in our day-to-day lives to appreciate the momentous value and contribution of research.
A defining characteristic of Chandigarh University is RESEARCH.
Chandigarh University is deeply committed to emphasize the importance and value of research—at the institutional level and further afield, both domestically and internationally.
Every day students and faculty at CU perform research and innovation and with our consistent efforts we have set up an advanced research culture and system. In many cases, these truly transformative innovations and successes are not achieved in isolation but are the outcomes of collaborative research efforts both domestically and internationally. Further to give our research objectives a proper shape we at CU have established University Centre for Research and Development (UCRD).
With the collaborative efforts of our faculty, students and experts we have achieved more than 25 patent fields, set up more than 50 departmental research groups, more than 1200 research papers published in National and International journals and more. With the combined efforts of research faculty and students we have achieved various feathers of success to our research cap like – curing Asthmatic allergies, ergonomically designed bicycle, correction of bone deformities. Currently our young researchers at CU are focussing on the core areas of macro-nano technology, computational biology, biomedical engineering, clean energy and environment and so on. Different departments at CU have organised separate research groups to carry on an organised research at CU.
To secure the efforts and to encourage the spirit of innovation of our trained faculty and enthusiastic students, we at CU have set up Intellectual Property Right Cell (IPRC) that covers industrial Property – patents, designs, trademarks and projects and ventures initiated by our staff and students.
Collaborations of a global nature create positive impacts not just at the institutional level, but more importantly, throughout the broader community. Focussing on this approach, International research collaborations are greatly fostered and nurtured at CU. Our collaborations with more than 100 international universities helps us collaboratively to bring diversity in perspective and approach to solve the challenges of our time and generate new ideas for the future. A culture of collaborative and innovative research among Australian universities and their international peers fosters a reciprocal culture of positive transformation.
We invite you to join with us in continuing to enrich this culture of innovation through collaboration in research. The more we engage globally, the more we all prosper. This must, after all, be the primary objective of research at CU.
