About CSIR - NEIST

CSIR-North East Institute of Science and Technology (Formerly Regional Research Laboratory) Jorhat, Assam was established in 1961 under the aegis of Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi as one of the multidisciplinary CSIR laboratories. The constituent laboratories of CSIR are grouped into five broad areas such as Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Engineering Sciences and Information Sciences depending upon the type of work, objective and the nature of responsibilities vested on these laboratories. On this basis, CSIR-NEIST is one among the seven laboratories under the Chemical Science group. Being the first and foremost R&D Institute in North East India, CSIR-NEIST has been engaged in multidisciplinary R&D activities contributing to the industrial growth and economic prosperity of the region as well as the country. The major thrust of R&D activities of CSIR-NEIST has been to develop indigenous technologies and knowledge base by utilizing the immense natural wealth of the North Eastern region of India. The North Eastern region of the country being bestowed with an abundance of material and bio-resources like petroleum, natural gas, minerals, tea, aromatic and medicinal plants, the laboratory was assigned to undertake research for development of expertise and know-how for a wide range of industries and extension works.

In accordance with the charter, goal and objectives, the Institute has focused its R&D mainly on five broad areas, viz., (i) Biological Science, (ii) Chemical Science, (iii) Engineering Science, (iv) Geo Science, and (v) Materials Science. But by considering the recent advance in artificial intelligence and machine learning, the institute currently added another broad area i.e. Advanced Computation and Data Sciences Division (ACDSD), for which the institute‚Äôs broad focused area is extended to six. The Institute has two branch laboratories one is at Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh and another is at Imphal, Manipur which are involved in extension activities and locality based R&D works. The Institute has developed expertise in the areas like natural products chemistry, drugs and drug intermediates, VSK cement technology, agro-technologies, petrochemicals, crude-oil transportations, paper and paper products, beneficiation chemicals, ecology and environment studies, geotechnical investigations, foundation design engineering, soil investigation and building materials including testing & analyses.
