What is the process?

The research cell is driven by a pool of faculties at ISBF, who focus on helping students to hone skills that will allow them to produce tangible research output towards the end of the academic year. The process of students’ selection starts in the first week of September. It’s a two-stage selection process involving a short interaction with the faculties. This is followed by the completion of assigned work within a stipulated time period. Each student is allotted a mentor as per their area of interest. The Cell also organizes a “Paper Presentation Competition” at the end of the academic session. Students receive feedback from the faculties to improve upon their work and the best paper is awarded.
