Directorate of UGC Affairs & Research

GITAM has established a Directorate of UGC Affairs & Research Activities to assist GITAM system to liaison with various apex bodies especially the UGC and to promote inter-disciplinary and co-disciplinary research by coordinating with various funding agencies.

Functions of directorate:

  • To guide and advice GITAM authorities regarding various funding resources for the development of GITAM.
  • To suggest measures for improving existing infrastructural facilities both for academic and sponsored research and enhancing research ambiance.
  • To assist academic departments of GITAM to prepare research proposals for various funding agencies.
  • To co-ordinate between University Grants Commission (UGC) and GITAM regarding funding of projects and other related matters.
  • To identify the areas of research with contemporary relevance and advise the faculty to undertake multidisciplinary projects.
  • To monitor and review research activities and suggest measures for improvement if necessary.
  • To promote industrial collaborations involving active and mutually beneficial R & D projects.

Ever since this directorate was established, it has been making all-round efforts in promoting research activities in GITAM, by motivating the faculty in various disciplines providing them necessary guidance and required directions and creating a conducive environment for undertaking productive research in GITAM.

This directorate maintains records of the inflow of funds, their proper utilization, upkeep of the documents, submission of utilization certificates to the funding agencies, etc. Further, the directorate provides information to faculty members from time to time about research opportunities, norms of funding agencies, maintenance of proper documentation, etc.

In addition to the above functions, the directorate also motivates the faculty to publish papers in high-quality journals of international repute. The directorate forwards the research proposals submitted by the faculty of GITAM to various funding agencies and actively pursues the sanction and release of necessary grants for the implementation of the research schemes by the faculty of GITAM.

The mission of the directorate is to increase the quantity and quality of research in GITAM by advising on strategic research issues, major research areas to be focused on, research core facilities, general issues concerning research infrastructure, etc. The directorate gives high priority to research areas in which GITAM can achieve national and international pre-eminence which will substantively improve the research activities of GITAM and take them to the next level.

GITAM strives hard to address the issues of society at large, viz: natural calamities, climate change, food, agriculture, healthcare, renewable & non-renewable energy resources, anthropological, linguistics, human resources, defense etc through multidimensional research in GITAM, as sponsored by various government funding agencies such as DST, UGC, DBT, CSIR, MoES, MoEFCC, DRDO, DAE, BARC, NABARD, ICMR, WNRF, ICPR, AYUSH etc, from time to time.

GITAM is committed to providing excellence in fundamental and applied research as well as the development of innovative technologies for the future. Directorate of UGC Affairs & Research Activities serves as the coordinating centre for externally funded research and sponsored projects.

Many stalwarts, renowned scientists, distinguished academicians and great multifaceted personalities from all over the country and overseas have visited our campus and interacted with our faculty and researchers to ignite and to build a high sense of motivation towards research, with the tireless efforts of the directorate.

GITAM accords top priority to promote research, duly motivating the faculty & researchers in all its three campuses and set certain standards throughout with practicable targets.
