“I breathe Innovation; I dream innovation and ensure that our outcome-based research and innovation ecosystem enable us to achieve ever rising benchmarks of success”

Research and Innovation is the life-force to any society. Research not only provides solutions to all societal issues but also provides better understanding of Science and Nature, which facilitates and guides Ideas into Innovation.

With a vision to provide sustained stimulus to Research and Innovation and uninterrupted support to the Research and Development in thrust areas of societal relevance and global importance, Amity Science, Technology & Innovation Foundation (ASTIF) and Amity Directorate of Science & innovation (ADSI) were established.

I am immensely pleased and proud of my Amitians – the Vice- Chancellors, Pro Vice Chancellors, HoDs, HoIs, Faculty Members, Scientists, Researchers and Students and every member of the team who have shown extraordinary zeal, devotion, hardwork and positive approach to achieve exponential growth in terms of Projects, Patents, Publications and Awards and contributing in making my dream a reality.

I am extremely delighted to state that the rigorous and constant efforts of Amitians have led to the establishment of Amity as one of the topmost “Research & Innovation Driven University” in the country and with your concerted efforts and determination, Amity will soon reach the position of one of the best in the world.
