List of selected participants for Sep 2018 Course

Overview of the Training Course

The program is intended as a platform for sharing knowledge and expertise in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with researchers and professionals from neighbouring countries so that they will be able to initiate R&D work in these domains in their respective institutions at home. This will be done through a series of well-designed lectures, interspersed with hands-on training in the state-of-the-art facilities at CeNSE, IISc, Bengaluru, India. The two-week program will also provide opportunity for participants to have discussions with faculty members and graduate students of CeNSE. In addition, visits to other laboratories within and outside IISc – including industry and national laboratories - will be arranged for participants. These various interactions can catalyse collaborations with Indian labs as well as among the participants.


  • To conduct workshops for dissemination of knowledge in the field of Nanoelectronics.
  • To impart hands-on training in Nanoelectronics to researchers from different countries.
  • To assist researchers from these countries with initiation of their research projects in Nanoelectronics by enabling their execution at CeNSE.
  • To provide a platform for researchers in Nano-electronics to come together and benefit from complementary expertise.
