Apply for a High Risk High Reward Mobility Grant


IIT Madras is a premier institute for research, which is home to a faculty of international repute and world class facilities. Faculty members at IIT Madras carry out high quality research, often in collaboration with researchers in areas which are at the forefront of cutting-edge research and technology. The Institute files more than 100 patents each year, and its faculty members and students publish top quality peer reviewed papers in highly acclaimed international and national journals.
