Institutions

Incubating innovation and talent

Overview

The Tata Trusts have set up several pioneering institutions that are exceptional centres of learning, research and intellectual capital beginning with their flagship institution, the Indian Institute of Science in Bengaluru in 1911. A crucial component of the nation-building activities of the Trusts, these centres of excellence have served as repositories of data and evidence, incubators of innovation and talent, and laboratories of cutting-edge research, and made India a power to reckon with in various fields, particularly medicine, science and education.
