The Centre for Advanced Materials Research with International Engagement, CAMRIE, at IISER Thiruvananthapuram, is one among its many initiatives to leverage the expertise and knowledge of the existing faculty members across the disciplines for solving emerging scientific challenges of bigger nature in advanced materials research, in collaboration with global researchers. Stationed at IISER TVM, the Centre is meant to foster international engagementand networking for cutting-edge interdisciplinary research. At present, 21 faculty members from various disciplines are associated with the centre. The Ph.D. students with different backgrounds – including science, engineering, medicine, etc. with a true sense of interdisciplinary nature – are planned to be admitted.The Ph.D. students registered in the centre will be engaged in exchange visits with the international partnering institutes to allow for a broad research perspective, and immersive research experience and exposure to different a culture.The centre shall be committed to carrying out cutting edge research in the frontier areas of advanced materials, leading to high-impact research papers and technology translation.
