IIT Madras has always been at the forefront of industry-academia collaboration. With the conception of the IIT Madras Research Park, this quest was amplified by creating a space where it acts as a catalyst for radical technological innovation. The Research Park makes one inimitable claim: only at IITMRP does faculty expertise, the country’s finest young minds, state-of-art technology and a wealth of research materials convene under one roof.

After all, collaborating with the brightest and the most experienced minds is a requisite for creating or discovering something incredible.
