Higher Outreach

The faculty and researchers are quite well equipped to deliver lectures on specific areas of nanoscience and technology, and soft matter sciences, besides a wide variety of general topics in science. We would also be glad to help in organizing the following sharply focused events in your institute

Apart from giving lectures on various topics the faculty at CeNS would also gladly help to organize the following events

BCONS: 1-day Basic Course on Nano-Soft science

ProCONS: 1-day Advanced Course on Nano-Soft science. Includes Demos and Quiz show

We would be eager to consider your request sent to outreach[at]cens.res.in
