We are excited to announce that on the 1st November 2017 the IGCS team at IIT Madras will be moving to their new building. The new building will be located in the new Biotechnology building in IIT Madras. The IGCS team, the Indian and German researchers and students will have an entire floor dedicated to it. The IGCS will now have access to large spaces, new equipment and new furniture that they can use to work with. The aim of the new premise is to have the entire IGCS team under one roof, enabling them to collaborate together to achieve their mutual goals of sustainability.
