All India Coordinated Research Projects(AICRP)

TNAU is identified as a coordinating center for more than 60 AICRP (All India Coordinated Research Projects) schemes cutting across the disciplines including the Home Science. Every year, the Project Coordinator/Project Director chalks out a tailor-made technical program to the scientists identified to work under the AICRP schemes and are coordinated and monitored by the Directorate of Research. Because of the decentralized research monitoring, the redundancy in the technical program to be implemented at TNAU centers under AICRP with that of the University mandated RPAs could not be assessed and avoided. Hence, the Directorate of Research closely monitors the research activities of scientists working under AICRP schemes as per their Annual Technical Programme to avoid duplications.
