Advisory committee suggests setting up of nanotechnology park in Chennai

Abstract:
A nanotechnology park in Chennai and a complete revamping of course syllabi to reflect inter-disciplinarity are among the suggestions made by Madras University's advisory committee for planning and development at its recent meeting.

G. Thiruvasagam, Vice-Chancellor, University of Madras, said that the 14-member advisory committee with members including eminent scientist A. Sivathanu Pillai, State Planning Commission Vice-chairman M. Naganathan, Tamil Nadu State Council for Higher Education Vice-Chairman A. Ramasamy and Tourism Secretary V. Irai Anbu had held a meeting last week to deliberate on updating the vision of the more than 150-year-old university.

Among the suggestions that had been brought forward were the setting up of a nanotechnology park, possibly at the Guindy campus of the University. Industry leaders would be invited and the government would be consulted, he said. At a recent meeting, Dr. Thiruvasagam had pointed out that of the funds allocated for nanotechnology, more than Rs.100 crore had not been utilised and this money would be used to step up the activities of the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
