Center for Grand Challenges & Green Technologies is a green technology/product development and commercialization center established by Applied Science Innovations Pvt. Ltd. (ASIPL). We plan to establish this center as a 'Center of Excellence (CoE)' in the area by leading the area of 'Green Chemistry and Technology' by way of original inventions, innovations, and discoveries - at National and International level. 'Excellence and/or relevance' is our policy. Our identified 'Thrust Areas' are closely associated with 'Top 10 Global Challenges for the next 50 years' identified by Sir R. Smalley. We plan to separate this center from ASIPL and register it as a 'Not-for-profit society' at the proper time.
