The 'Institute of Eminence' (IoE) Scheme was launched by the Government of India to empower Higher Educational Institutions and help them become world-class teaching and research institutions. IIT Madras, one of the pre-eminent learning and research institutions, has been chosen as one such Institute of Eminence. Pursuant to our commitment to fostering world-class research, IIT Madras has set up several research initiatives in diverse fields of contemporary relevance.

These efforts leverage the prior strengths of the teams to address new problems that were not studied before, with great potential for important breakthroughs in knowledge and applications. Some of these new initiatives will gain momentum and rapidly grow into global Centres of Excellence over the next five years.
