NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED STUDIES


Indian Institute of Science Campus, Bangalore, India.
National Institute of Advanced Studies

The National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) was conceived and established by the vision and initiative of the late Mr. J. R. D. Tata.

He sought to create an institution which would conduct advanced research in multidisciplinary areas, and also serve as a forum that will bring together administrators and managers from industry and government, leaders in public affairs, eminent individuals in different walks of life, and the academic community in the natural & social sciences, and the arts & humanities.

Dr. Raja Ramanna, as the Founder Director, immensely contributed to the growth and development of this Institute . Over a period of time, NIAS initiated several research programmes and other activities that brought recognition and fame.

In subsequent years, Dr. Roddam Narasimha and Dr. K. Kasturirangan became the Directors of NIAS. Presently Dr.V.S. Ramamurthy is the Director.

NIAS celebrates its Silver Jubilee Year 2012-2013 starting from 20 June 2012 More
