ICTS provides a platform for researchers working on diverse subjects to congregate during high-quality programs of varying durations. These highly interactive sessions endorse research areas that are especially contemporary, important and intellectually challenging. The programs contribute to transforming the way people approach research, venture into unexplored directions, nurture new frontiers of science and encourage collaborations. ICTS also encourages cross-disciplinary immersions and collaborations between theorists and experimentalists, and fosters research areas of importance to India.
