UGC-DAE Consortium for Scientific Research is an autonomous institute of the University Grants Commission (UGC), which aims to facilitate the University utilization of the mega science facilities established by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE).

This novel endeavour, aims to promote interaction amongst the scientists working in the research centres of the Department of Atomic Energy and the faculty from the universities and other institutions of higher learning, and to enable young students to work on programmes of national importance under the joint guidance of the faculty from universities and the scientists of DAE. It is envisaged that these efforts would uniquely nurture an organic linkage between the university system and research centres of DAE.

The Consortium, has it's head quater at Indore, and three centers at Indore, Mumbai and Kolkata respectively, with a node at Kalpakkam.

A Theme meeting on "Science and Engineering of Materials using Ion Beams" is being organized in collaboration with VECC, Kolkata, on 16th July 2021, please refer to the poster located under "Workshop" category

The Kolkata Center, supports the use of Radiation (Particulate as well as electromagnetic) to probe matter (both living as well as non-living)

It supports and coordinates, the utilization of the following accelerator based facilities at :

  • Variable Energy Cyclotron Center, Kolkata,
  • The 3 MV Pelletron at Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar
  • And to a limited extent at BARC and the 14UD Pelletron at the TIFR
