 CSIR's Integrated Skill Initiative Programme


  • Council of Scientific and Industrial Research’s Integrated Skill Initiative Programme has been initiated with integrated skill initiatives in diverse areas with varying duration by the CSIR's labs. All these training programmes are interconnected and linked to industry requirements and thus would invariably contribute to the subsequent employment generation, including small-scale entrepreneurship.
