Our values are inculcated from the founding members of CeNSE, who strove hard to infuse a sense of collaboration and commitment to high standards. First and foremost is the intention with which the centralized facilities (NNFC, MNCF, Packaging Facility, SysEF, CoNE) were created at CeNSE and opened to the Indian research community in an almost missionary mode, committed to service. We also draw inspiration from many faculty members from across the IISc campus, their contemporary research traditions, and their partnership with the global academia and industry, which strives to tackle both "blue sky" and "down to earth" problems. Our source of inspiration also comes from public funding agencies which have ensured that we have all resources for the establishment and running of this singular facility.
