"We have an enthusiastic response from students and faculty alike and expressed our clear intention to participate FAIR project in various ways," Manipal Advanced Research Group (MARG) Executive director and Registrar (International Programmes) H Vinod Bhat told PTI.
The University has been collaborating with GSI over the past few years. The nodal agency in India for this collaboration is the DST and participation is open to Universities.
"It is natural that Manipal University would like to participate as actively as possible along with our other Indian counterparts," Bhat said.
"We are in the process of putting a framework in place at the University to enable the seamless co-ordination within the various departments at the University as well as with external collaborators. We expect that participation in FAIR will add an important facet to our foray into the physical sciences in the near future," he said.
