Centre of Excellence and Innovation Scheme of DBT

Dear All,


        You may be aware that DBT is also having a Centre of Excellence (CoE) and innovation scheme, which was being earlier handled by independent programme division. As per new work allocation of DBT officers, this scheme has now been decentralized and now can be dealt by each Programme Division. Now all the programme divisions like Aquaculture & Marine Biotechnology can have proposals submitted by the PIs working in the areas for the Centre of Excellence scheme on the same model earlier. The detail scheme can be seen on the DBT website (


        Some of those who may be interested to apply can take advantage of it. However, it may be noted that the selection of the proposal will be strictly on merit basis and based on the scientific calibre with the institute/ organization and with the expertise.
