In addition to working at the ground level for enhancing awareness of and interest in science and technology, USERC has contributed to creating institutions with clearly defined objectives. Uttarakhand Centre on Climate Change (UCCC) and Centre of Excellence in Mathematical Sciences, setup in the Kumaun University campus, work in focussed scientific domains. Plans are afoot to create a holistic centre dedicated to promoting higher education in science and technology. USERC is also developing a synergetic network with many academic institutions located in the state and outside. Our scientists’ work has generated considerable interest among peers and has generated significant support for research activities from both state and national funding agencies.
