Extramural Research (EMR) funding scheme of SERB to academic institution, research laboratories and other R&D organizations to carry out basic research in all frontier areas of Science and Engineering is in limelight for more than four decades since from the inception of SERC. This scheme encourages emerging and eminent scientist in field of science and engineering for individual centric competitive mode of research funding. Since the scheme provides core research support to the active researchers, the existing name Extramural Research (EMR) has been renamed as Core Research Grant (CRG).
The scheme provides core research support to active researchers to undertake research and development in frontier areas of Science and Engineering.
The results of the proposal submitted in a call will be generally communicated within six months of closing of the call.Fund release will depend on timely submission of required documents by the investigatorsand the availability of funds, etc.
The project proposal should be prepared according to the guidelines and submitted online through the website www.serbonline.in
