Research & Innovation
Research and Innovation forms the backbone of any nation that takes rapid strikes towards a developed nation. India, as a nation, has just started this journey in a purposeful manner.
As part our educational institution network and outreach, we consider it within the scope of research & innovation efforts to support these uplifting & good business practices. Leveraging on the expertise of CL Educate’s Accendere and its own platform WAINConnect (Worldwide Academia Industry Network), CLEF has been actively involved in initiatives that support governmental endeavors, as well as private initiatives to impact institutions & individuals in the domains of research and innovation.
