Collaborative and Consultation Division

About the division

This Division established in 2009 to function as an instrument for collaborative research and to transfer scientific knowledge and technologies developed at the IFS to the society at large. Although the IFS has an excellent record with respect to research publications, its impact on national development had been very low. His Excellency the President of Sri Lanka as the Chairman of its Board of Management has therefore suggested that the IFS should develop a mechanism for knowledge and technology transfer. The CCD chaired by the Director and facilitated by a Coordinator, will promote, regularize and monitor collaboration of IFS projects with outside organizations including the private sector and encourage IFS scientists to engage in productive consultations. Only projects of National importance and those having an impact on National Development would be entertained. Any interested parties for collaboration and Consultation, i.e. Universities, Research Institutes, NGOs & CBOs registered in Sri Lanka, Corporate & Private sector organizations, should contact The Director, IFS for further details.
