A key success of the National Centre for Nanostructured Materials (NCNSM), a joint initiative of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has been its role in developing skilled researchers. This was highlighted on Monday by NCNSM director Professor Suprakas Sinha Ray, addressing the centre’s tenth anniversary celebration. "What is the biggest achievement in the past ten years?" he queried. "The biggest success is human capital development. That is making [an] impact on the country."
