Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur is one of the premier institutions established by the Government of India. The aim of the Institute is to provide meaningful education, to conduct original research of the highest standard and to provide leadership in technological innovation for the industrial growth of the country. The Institute began functioning in the borrowed building of Harcourt Butler Technological Institute in 1959 with 100 students and a small faculty. The Institute now has its own sprawling residential campus, about 1450 undergraduate and 850 postgraduate students, 300 faculty members and more than 1500 supporting staff. The combined record of its past and present faculty members and current students along with the alumni spread across the world is awe-inspiring. With the path-breaking innovations in both its curriculum and research, the Institute is rapidly gaining a legendary reputation.
IIT Kanpur is located on the Grand Trunk Road, 15 km west of Kanpur City and measures close to 420 hectares. This land was given by the Government of Uttar Pradesh in 1960 and by March 1963 the Institute had moved to its current location. If someone had visited it then, he/she would have seen a standing crop, acacia woods, a long winding line of stately mango trees, flocks of peafowl and a conventional country side scene of India. The residential campus is planned and landscaped with a hope for environmental freedom. Halls of residence, faculty and staff houses and community buildings surround the central academic area to provide flexibility in movement and communication. The person who brought about this mammoth transformation was Mr. Achyut Kanvinde, a Pune-based architect. Since the beginning, the Institute has attracted scholars from across the country. The rich cultural diversity of India is reflected in the campus activities of IIT-K as well.
Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), Delhi, INDIA is a premier Institute carrying out research leading to generation of new knowledge and development of technologies in various areas of Modern Biotechnology with a special focus on Genomics and Genome informatics
IGIB formerly Centre for Biochemical Technology (CBT) is a constituent Laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) engaged in various aspects of Biotechnology research. Centre was established with the core competence in preparative biochemistry for isolation of fine biochemicals from natural resources viz., proteins, lipids, enzymes; synthesizing bioorganic compounds like peptides, oligonucleotides and preparing reagents required for recombinant - DNA research. As biochemical technology enters the genomics era, the Centre is in the process of transforming from a singular laboratory working in the area of biochemical research to a network laboratory, leading to the formation of a virtual institute of new biology
IGIB building is inside Delhi University Campus at Mall Road, in front of Jubilee Hall, a very famous boys hostel.

University College Dublin (UCD) is a dynamic, modern university where cutting-edge research and scholarship provide a stimulating intellectual environment - the ideal surroundings for learning and discovery. For over 150 years, UCD has produced graduates of remarkable distinction including famous surgeons, architects, entrepreneurs and five of Ireland’s Taoisigh (Prime Ministers). Perhaps the best known of all its graduates is the writer James Joyce, who completed his Bachelor of Arts at the university in 1902. Established in 1854, the university played a key role in the history of the modern Irish State and today it plays a leading part in shaping Ireland’s future. As Ireland forges a new identity through relationships with international partners, the university will adopt an increasingly international outlook.
CASL is an innovative and exciting collaborative research laboratory at UCD which leverages the unique mix of expertise at UCD in various fields. We break down the usual disciplinary walls that hinder breakthrough creative research by putting computer scientists, mathematicians, electronic engineers, geologists, biologists and financial academics in the same space.
