Who we are

The TERI-Deakin Nanobiotechnology Centre was established in 2011 by TERI’s Biotechnology and Bioresources Division in collaboration with Deakin University, Australia with the mandate of developing innovative nanobiotechnology-based solutions to address current challenges in the field of agriculture and environment. It brings together the complimentary expertise of TERI in agriculture, biotechnology, green energy, bioremidiation and nanotechnology and Deakin's expertise in material, chemical and physical sciences. Jointly supported by both organizations, the Centre aims to take global space through the nanobiotechnology interventions in sustainable agriculture, environment, and energy by employing or developing multidisciplinary approaches, tools and technologies.


  • Achieve sustainability in agricultural practices
  • Safe nano-delivery systems and cheap diagnostics for agriculture
  • Mitigate environment-related problems – such as toxic chemicals and wastes
  • Innovate solutions for cleaner and greener energy
