Electrochemistry is an interdisciplinary area and finds increasing applications in most of the modern themes such as energy generation / storage, healthcare diagnostics, materials fabrication / protection. As more and more problems look for solutions in Electrochemistry, there is an enormous scope for generating innovative ideas and carrying out cutting-edge experiments. CSIR- Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CSIR-CECRI) is well equipped to perform such experiments and young and bright scholars will find both ambience and challenge in conducting their doctoral programmes. Majority of the project work requires fundamental investigations with a bearing on futuristic programmes and scholarly inputs are crucial to this growth.
