ACTIVITIES OF RESEARCH CENTRE


The key activities of this centre is to investigate the issues/problems and related areas which have become increasingly complex and inter-disciplinary requiring solutions, which are based on principles of Biological sciences such as Nutrition and Dietetics, Food Science and Nutrition, Zoology, Botany, Biotechnology and Pure & Applied Sciences such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Geography. Even though the self-governing solutions from these areas have been developed, an interfacial integration of these areas can lead to more effective and comprehensive solutions. With this specific objective of integrating the Sciences, Medicine to address issues, Midnapore City College has taken the initiative to create a research centre. Research in “Folk Culture” is also other activities of the centre as the concerned area is very much enrich in traditional folk practices. This centre will bring together experts from various disciplines to focus on providing solutions to specific problems including health issues.

THE GOAL OF THE RESEARCH CENTRE


The major goal of the proposed centre is to conduct community need and demand centric research for scientific up gradation of the human society.

CORE FACULTY GROUP


The Centre will have a core faculty group, consisting of large number of faculty members, whose interests lie in areas related to ‘Humanity, Science and Technology’ and other related areas. The core group will meet with the project investigators at least once a month under the convenor/coordinator of Research Committee of the ‘Midnapore City College’, who can coordinate or monitor the progress of the projects and activities of the research centre.
