Research Grants - Individual
DAE Science Research Council (DAE SRC) is a body consisting of eminent scientists and has been setup to guide basic research being done in the units of DAE. The DAE SRC proposes to set up Frontier Area Research Units around outstanding individuals in order to impart a fresh momentum to advanced research in the areas of science and engineering of interest to DAE. Each Unit will be initially supported for a period of five years. In cases where the performance is exceptional, the support is extendable for a further period of 5 years.
Eligibility: Individual Scientists/Engineers of the DAE constituent units, as well as those outside DAE, working in public funded institutions are eligible to apply for these awards. The age of the applicant shall not be above 47 years as on 31 December of the year of application.
