Science and Technology Research Centers in Kerala

We have a lot of S&T research centers in the state.. (it may be noted that only one of them is an engineering research center in the conventional or IT-related engineering disciplines).. i thought i would create a list of them and here it is..

It may be noted here that most of the Research centers perform far better than university departments. Care has been taken to include only those institutes which have established their place in the global research scene of the area in which they specialise in.

A science journal is one of the most important milestones of proper research. It is not possible to document the various developments in science and technology
unless you are able to publish in a scientific journal.
