Research Online

The Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor has allocated budget to fund research projects to be undertaken by the faculty pursuing research in various areas. The aim of the scheme is to strengthen the research activity especially among the young faculty members which will act as a catalyst for them to apply to the various funding agencies for major grants.

The University of Pune launched an e-service Research online for teachers on November 10, called Research Online to enable online filing of research proposals for the year 2012.
This e-service will also help to create updated electronic data on various research projects in progress and publications in international and national journals.

University of Pune has initiated many Innovative Academic Programmes in recent past. Since 2006, the UoP introduced the scheme to encourage college and varsity-level research projects by teachers. The university provides Rs 50,000 to Rs 3 lakh for each project, depending upon the proposal. Close to 8,000 teachers from the 50 odd UoP departments, about 800 colleges and institutions directly or indirectly benefit from the scheme.
