Research is without a doubt the fulcrum for the academic community. It is as important for an academic organization, as it is for the personal growth of academicians. SIBM-Bengaluru recognizes this completely and accords the highest importance to excellence in research, which is evident in its policy as well as practice.

Symbiosis Centre for Research and Innovation (SCRI) is the dedicated department of SIU for promoting and facilitating research among students and faculty. SCRI inculcates a thriving culture of research, which facilitates researchers to achieve excellence in their work, which eventually translates SIU’s vision of creation of knowledge for the benefit of the society into reality. SIBM-Bengaluru has imbibed SIU’s ethos towards excellence in research and the research environment at the institute is driven by the SIU Research Policy outlined here:
