SATHI—Sharing Research Infrastructure

In an effort to boost the research ecosystem, IIT Delhi is setting up - SATHI – Sophisticated Analytical and Technical Help Institutes – to house high end analytical, testing, characterisation and fabrication instruments.

  • To generate new knowledge by engaging in cutting-edge research and to promote academic growth by offering state-of-the-art undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes.
  • To identify the areas of specialization upon which the institute can concentrate.
  • To undertake collaborative projects which offer opportunities for long-term interaction with academia and industry.

“All the facilities procured through SATHI scheme will be housed in the Sonipat extension campus of IIT Delhi. Other facilities already established under Central Research Facility (CRF) and Nanoscale Research Facility (NRF) in IIT Delhi Hauz Khas and Sonipat campuses will also be available to the users of SATHI facilities. These facilities will definitely boost the research eco-system and academia-industry interaction of this region in particular and of the country in general,” Prof Pankaj Srivastava, Head of SATHI at IIT Delhi says.

The center at IIT Delhi is one of the three centers launched this year by the Department of Science and Technology.

The SATHI centre at IIT Delhi will provide fabrication, testing and sophisticated analytical facility, along with providing expert advice, mentoring to help and promote entrepreneurship, small scale and medium scale industries towards innovation, prototype and product development.

“The aim is to amplify and enhance capability in cutting edge areas of science and technology to achieve global leadership,” adds Prof Srivastava
