  • Carry out research projects of their own choice or participate in the host institution’s research project without any claim on intellectual property rights (IPR).
  • Interact and identify areas for cooperation and participate in workshops and conferences and
  • Deliver series of lectures and seminars in the fields of biology and biotechnology, chemical science and technology, material science, manufacturing technology, geosciences and electronics or in any other emerging field of global significance.

Congratulations Professor Pal!
