Research, innovation and development are essential components of quality education dissemination by Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) . Hansraj College has taken up the initiative of establishing a Research and Development Cell (RDC) as mandated by the Government of India for the creation and transfer of knowledge and to put in place a robust mechanism for developing the research ecosystem in the campus. The research initiatives are strengthened by the generation of knowledge, innovation and technology for the larger benefit of the society by mobilization of resources and funding. RDC works through the human, intellectual and financial capitals, research promotion and guidance, innovations and incubation systems, capacity building, integrity and ethics, and fostering community, industry and governmental collaborations at local, national and international levels. RDC serves as a nodal center for ideation and conceptualization of research programs through the conduct of workshops, training programs, conferences, and seminars.

  • RDC encourages the research culture in the campus and encourages students and faculty to undertake research problems in the newly emerging fields. Under the umbrella of RDC, two research centers have been established in the campus - Har Gobind Khorana Centre for Chemical Biology (HC2B) and Jagadish Chandra Bose Centre for Plant Genomics (JCBCPG) to promote research at the undergraduate level.
  • RDC has sanctioned interdisciplinary research projects, which involve faculty and students from various departments of the college. 22 such interdisciplinary research projects have been sanctioned to faculty members to train undergraduate students in research. Around 45 faculty members and 95 undergraduate students from various departments are working on these projects.
  • Various conferences, seminars, workshops and training programs are conducted under the aegis of RDC to cater to the students, and faculties.
