Skill development and specific domain knowledge are fundamental to the growth of research, science, technology and in turn, drive the manufacturing & services sectors. Realizing the importance of skill development in nation-building, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in its Platinum Jubilee Year (2016) has launched a significant program – ‘CSIR Integrated Skill Initiative’. CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory (CSIR-NCL), one of the flagship laboratories of CSIR in chemical science and engineering and allied research fields has embarked on implementing the “CSIR-Integrated Skill Initiative” program by offering various skill development and upskilling courses for undergraduates, postgraduates and indeed to the youth who remain unemployed even after obtaining a suitable educational qualification degree. The workers and industry staff members will also be benefitted from the proposed program. The emphasis is to create a robust and sustainable training module of trans-disciplinary nature for skilled workforce generation for the industrial requirements. The major objective of this program is to give students the opportunity to develop the skills they’ll need to prosper “both in their career and beyond”. One of the goals of the program is to expose students to career options available and to enhance their chances of employability. The plan further aims to create opportunities, space and scope for the development of the talents of the youth and to expand more of those sectors which have already been put under skill development for the last so many years and also to identify new areas for skill development.


To provide world class high-end skilling in the national skill eco-system with an aim to create high-quality skilled workforce relevant to current and emerging industry need in the area of core competencies of the laboratory.


To enhance the skill development activities through our highly experienced scientific staff & state of the art available infrastructure for high-quality skilled workforce.
