Anaadi Center for Transdisciplinary Research Initiatives (ATRI )

ATRI Centre is envisioned to create a thriving ecosystem for integrative and trans-disciplinary research, blending indigenous and modern knowledge systems, focusing on innovation in research methods, exploring solutions to research problems that are socially relevant and most importantly creative knowledge dissemination methods for making such high-end sciences available for common-man, bridging the gap between the intelligentsia and grass roots reality, so that both can inform each other making research themes relevant, coherent and practically beneficial. The long-term vision is also to create scientific frameworks that can acknowledge and cite traditional Indian wisdom. Dr. Mala Kapadia, former Professor SP Jain and IKS expert currently heads the center.
