About IKS

Centre for Indian Knowledge Systems
Center for North East Studies-Consciousness, Economy, Agriculture and Food Security.

PI: Prof. Nataraju Adarasupally,
Dean, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan School of Philosophical Studies, Assam University.

Over View of the Project:

By selecting four themes with specific objectives and outcomes, this center aims to educate and mentor research activities related to Indian Knowledge Systems in the North East India. Except Indian Consciousness Studies, the remaining three themes are directly related to North East India centered. The inter disciplinary approach, and collaboration is the strength of this center. There are four co-PIs from four different departments to bring their expertise and research to work for this center and also fulfil IKS mission. We also aim to collaborate with other North East universities to promote more project proposals from faculty and research scholars. Publication of books, research papers and articles is the priority.
