Projects are sought on applications for any branch of PURE and applied Physical Science, with special emphasis on problems of societal relevance. Given the scope of the program, we expect the projects to be ambitious, collaborative and transformative. The quality of science should be of international standard, and should involve substantial theoretical/experimental components.

Priority Areas

  • Quantum Technologies : Quantum Information Sciences, Quantum Computing, Quantum Communication and Quantum Sensing.
  • Photonics and Quantum Photonics.
  • Designing Self Assembled Functional Materials / Robotics with Control and Adaptation, Reprogrammable Group/Collective Dynamics Soft Engineering, Reprogrammable Soft Materials, Physics of living systems.
  • Advanced Hard Materials (smart / high strength / Energy storage and harvesting). Topological matter, novel superconductors.
