One of the tenets that JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) believes in strongly is that research is the pinnacle of a student’s education and vital to improve the quality of life.
The research centers at JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) focus on finding solutions to disruptive interdisciplinary / cross-disciplinary research problems that will have a significant societal and/or economic impact. Through its extensive network of highly skilled research faculty and scientists, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and collaborators, the University is working towards advancing research by funding growth, creating unique research training opportunities, and increasing its competitiveness for externally funded program project and grants.
A Research Development Cell (RDC) has been established with the Vice Chancellor as the Chairman and the Pro Vice Chancellors, the Deans of Faculty, Directors of the Research Centers, and eminent experts as members. The RDC oversees the research activities undertaken at the University level. The RDC has created Research Development Units (RDU) in each faculty. The RDUs are headed by the concerned deans and consists of all heads of departments in the faculty, professors, and external experts in the chosen research domain. The RDC also oversees the Ph.D. programs of the University and coordinates the activities of the research centers. The major and minor research projects that are proposed by the faculty are scrutinized by the concerned RDUs and subsequently, approved by the RDC and forwarded to the concerned sponsoring agencies. In-house projects are reviewed by the RDUs and recommended to the RDC for approval. The University sets aside a portion of its budget for such in-house research projects. The approved project coordinators are required to submit biannual reports to the concerned RDUs. The RDC conducts workshops and seminars on research methods at regular intervals for faculty and research students.
The following are a few of the salient features of the research policy:
The University believes in promoting interdisciplinary research programs. It has collaborations with national/international research institutions of excellence for execution of research projects. Most of these are interdisciplinary in nature. The University also has multidisciplinary research projects. Enlisted below are the collaborations of the University.

With the declaration of JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) (formerly Sri Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain College) as Deemed-to-be-University in 2008, vide Ministry of HRD, Government of India notification No. F-9-57/2007-U3 (A), the Academic Council of JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) approved absorption of CRCE as a Center of Excellence of the University. The Center was mandated to carry out the following activities:
The Center for Disaster Mitigation (CDM) was founded in August 2008 as a constituent unit of the JGI Group. It is involved in research, development, and educational activities in the field of Disaster Mitigation. CDM is housed in the global campus of JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) along with the School of Engineering, on the Bangalore-Kanakapura road, Jakkasandra.
The objective of the Center is to mitigate disasters due to natural and man-made hazards. CDM carries out research, teaching, testing, and consultancy in the areas of earthquakes, floods and drought, fire and safety engineering, and industrial waste utilization. The Center is committed to develop a group of well-trained work force, catering to the ever-increasing needs of the country in the field of disaster mitigation.
CDM is a member of the National Fire Protection Association (www.nfpa.org), USA. CDM is collaborating with Underwriters Laboratories (www.ul.com), USA to establish a world-class fire testing laboratory - the UL-Jain Fire Laboratories, India (UL-JFL). CDM is also collaborating with CGPL, IISc. (cgpl.iisc.ernet.in) on efficient utilization of biomass.
