Welcome to IISER Thiruvananthapuram

Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram (IISER-TVM) is dedicated to scientific research and science education of international standards. Traditionally, teaching has been segregated from research in undergraduate science curricula in our country. IISERs were established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, to bridge this dichotomy. IISER-TVM started functioning in August 2008. The institute aims to provide high quality education in modern science, integrating it with outstanding research at the undergraduate level itself, and develop a spirit of research cutting across disciplines. The faculty are engaged in research in the frontier areas of basic sciences, with a high degree of autonomy and creativity.

ISCAN 2016

The International Symposium on Clusters, Cluster –Assemblies and Nanomaterials (ISCAN), 2016 will be organized jointly by Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Thiruvananthapuram (IISER TVM) and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) from March 9-12, 2016. The symposium will focus on the theoretical and experimental developments in the areas of atomic clusters, cluster assemblies, and nanoscale materials. It will highlight the physical, chemical, electronic and magnetic properties in reduced sizes and how these can be integrated into cluster assembled nanoscale materials to offer materials with tunable characteristics. Please visit the conference website for details.
