CSIR-4PI Open Day

 Welcome to CSIR-4PI Open Day. It is a proud and happy moment for all of us at CSIR-4PI as we enter into our Silver Jubilee Year (2012-2013). Open Day provides the opportunity to explore and experience our facilities, meet our scientists, staff and students and participate in our exhibition, videos, experiments, infrastructure and also get the opportunity to see  one of the most advanced super computing facilities, listed number one in the country and 58th in the world.

Our programs and research are international in scope, vision and standards and we proudly maintain a strong and distinctive national identity. We create models for societal benefit,  life-changing and life-shaping experiences that provide the foundation on which to build the future of our country.

Whether you are a prospective student, family member or friend, a curious local or a visitor to Bangalore, we hope you will make the most of our Open Day and we look forward to seeing you at our center.

Prof. P Seshu
