Brief Introduction

The interdisciplinary Centre for Water Research (ICWaR) at the Indian Institute of science (IISc) was established in April, 2015 with an aim to address water-related issues that have formidable scientific challenges and significant practical relevance. Over the past several decades, the institute has made high impact contributions in the areas related to water science and technology, both at the large (country, regional and river basin) scales and at small (watershed, experimental field and laboratory scales). There is a significant multi-disciplinary strength available in the institute to address many critical issues related to water and make notable research contributions while simultaneously providing implementable solutions to a number of problems related to water management.
