Message from Theme Director
It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to the portal of the Theme Directorate on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Materials. Needless to mention, these 4Ms represent the four cardinal parameters in India's quest of self-reliance and economic advancement. With 16 laboratories in this Theme spread across all parts of the country, CSIR is poised to make significant contribution.
In this Theme Directorate we wish to address the major issues on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Materials from the angles of science, technology and engineering. IN order to achieve the desired outcomes we wish to focus on policy research and analytics covering technological assessment/forecasting, techno-economics, global trends and roadmaps, and IP portfolio studies. The Theme as a whole is also envisaged to facilitate capacity building in the constituent domains so as to ensure availability of adequately proficient human resources to drive growth.
I seek cooperation from all concerned in this endeavour.
