In the Tenth Five Year Plan, CSIR had adopted a new approach in the selection and implementation of R&D projects in its constituent laboratories. The emphasis was on networking of resources and capabilities of the constituent laboratories in multi-disciplinary areas and seek substantial increases in value through inputs of S&T. These networked projects essentially aimed at target oriented core R&D projects and building of capabilities and facilities.
