Birla Institute of Scientific Research (BISR) was established in realization of the dreams of visionary industrialist Shri Braj Mohan Birla to foster and promote Science and Technology. His vision was carried forward by Late Shri Ganga Prasad Birla and now by Shri Chandra Kant Birla by strengthening and diversifying the activities of BISR. Apart from Research and Development BISR promotes science education through Museum and Planetarium. It has also a state of the art Convention Facility. The institute has grown with time and is now poised to emerge as an important Centre cultivating science and technology, art and culture.

Keeping in view the contemporary trends, modern thinking and global opportunities BISR looks forward to strengthen its status as a leading R & D Institute of the country by investing in and broadening specific infrastructure and human resources. Networking with the leading institutions/industries in the identified thrust areas is one of its important developmental strategies.
