CSIR National Chemical Laboratory,Pune

One of the current missions of CSIR is mass deployment of technologies already developed at its laboratories for the benefit of society and country. In this direction, NCL is in the process of identifying such technologies which were developed in the last few years and with further initiatives with local industry and people, the technology can provide solutions to human welfare. Another objective is the creation of scientific temper and deductive thinking approach in students and youngsters (and even adults).

With this objective the current web site content launched on Technology Day 11th May 2016 marks a new link of NCL scientists with people and society.

Another interesting feature of the web content is Q&A. School and college students often wonder what scientists do and how their work will change our lives. This newly created site is aimed to attract young students, non-scientists and common people to interact with scientists and understand how their technology works. The products displayed in the link pages will be launched in Pune in the coming months. I am sure you will like to go through these contents and will send us helpful comments that will bring Scientists and Society together. This site will hopefully initiate a new dialogue. Keep reading and we will be glad to hear from you.

Honourable PM called upon the scientific community at CSIR to list at least one hundred problems being faced by people in various parts of India, and take up the challenge of solving them technologically within a specified time period .

Life-saving equipment for the jawans, innovations related to solar energy, and innovations related to agriculture sector.

The Prime-Minister emphasized that he would like to see CSIR oriented towards making the life of the common man better, and providing technological solutions to the problems of the poor and downtrodden sections of society.

As you know, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has 38 laboratories in India. Each is working in a different yet allied branch of science. The vision of CSIR is to "Pursue science which strives for global impact, technology that enables innovation-driven industry and nurture transdisciplinary leadership thereby catalysing inclusive economic development for the people of India"

This vision of CSIR is percolated to each of the laboratories which summarize to visualise affordable and accessible innovation for inclusive development focussing on the people at the base of the economic pyramid.

As you know NCL is a publicly funded R&D and consulting organisation under the CSIR, Govt. of India. Our motto is to develop technologies, processes and products which are relevant to our stakeholder – society and industry.
