Academy of Scientific & Innovative Research (AcSIR) is a research Academy created by an Act of Indian Parliament to be an Institute of National Importance. Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) has adopted the mandate to create and train some of the best of tomorrow’s Science & Technology leaders through a combination of innovative and novel curricula, pedagogy and evaluation. AcSIR’s focus will be on imparting instruction and providing research opportunities in such areas that are not routinely taught in regular academic universities in India.

With the merger of CSIR-NISTADS and CSIR-NISCAIR resulting into one unified entity now CSIR-NIScPR (National Institute of Science communication and Policy Research)has brought out new opportunities and challenges for AcSIR activities and it has confirmed its commitment for nurturing and nourishing the AcSIR activities.
