MOU between ISRO and NIT-P will establish an academic center for space research

“Regional Academic Centre for Space” to be established by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) at the National Institute of Technology, Patna. The Center will facilitate space technology, space science, and space applications relevant to space program activities in eastern India. The Center is open to any eastern Indian institute that needs experimental support.

Key Highlight:

  • ISRO will establish a ‘Regional Academic Center for Space’ at the National Institute of Technology Patna.
  • The Center will facilitate space technology, space science, and space applications relevant to space program activities in eastern India.
  • The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will also provide financial assistance to the tune of Rs2 crore per year.
  • NIT-P will now serve as the eastern region’s mentor institute for space research, thanks to the establishment of the Regional Academic Centre for Space (RAC-S)

ISRO will establish a ‘Regional Academic Center for Space at the National Institute of Technology Patna (NIT-P) to encourage students to explore space. India’s space program will benefit greatly from the establishment of this research facility.

Earlier this week, the NIT-Patna and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) signed an MoU in this regard. Attendees included NIT P’s director PK Jain, ISRO’s director of CBPO (Capacity Building Grame Office), Sudheer Kumar N and associate director of response and academic interface-CBPO (MA Paul).

To promote advanced research in the field of space technology, space science, and space applications relevant to space program activities in eastern India, the Center has been established (including Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Sikkim). The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has designated NIT-Patna as its regional research and development center.

In his remarks, PK Jain stated that the NIT-P will now serve as the eastern region’s mentor institute for space research, thanks to the establishment of the Regional Academic Centre for Space (RAC-S). “In order to meet the requirements of the ISRO, it will promote research activities in various fields such as electronics, communication technology, material science and remote sensing. With the help of the ISRO, we will submit a joint research project based on the topics and ideas that experts share with us. The scientists will supervise, monitor, and guide the project, “he stated.

“There will be no restrictions on the use of any experimental facilities in eastern India. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will also provide financial assistance to the tune of Rs2 crore per year. This support extends to undergraduate, postgraduate, Ph.D., and teaching departments. NIT-P and other institutions’ BTech/MTech students will work on the short-term projects, “Jain commented.

“For Ph.D. students and faculty members, the Center will provide long-term research and development opportunities. It can either be a one-on-one project or a joint effort with another university. Projects go through two rounds of review: first by the NIT-P and then by the ISRO. “Then he said something.

He said that the RAC-S Center would serve as a conduit for space technology activities in the region and become an ambassador for the capacity building, awareness creation, and R&D activities of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). In addition, he discussed the research fields and the various ways in which people can get involved in the project.

It has set up five RAC-Ss across India, including IIT-BHU (Varanasi), NISTKURUKSHETRA, MNIT-JAIPUR, NITK-SURAKAL, and Gauhati University. ‘
