Mega Science Projects (MSPs)

The Government of India (GOI) has been supporting participation in Mega Science Projects for some time now. These projects appeal to the scientific curiosity of researchers in search of answers to some of the important questions facing the world of science and are of interest to a large scientific community from within the country and outside. The Mega Science Projects are very large in terms of outlays and the complexity involved, making it necessary for a user group, institution or even individual countries to join hands with other similarly interested partners. Implementation of such projects involves multi-institutional teams, including possible international collaboration.


The Mega Science Vision Exercise

Participation in Mega Science Projects by Indian scientists has always been planned after careful nation-wide consultations. These consultations have come to be known as Mega Science Vision (MSV) Exercises. The last such Mega Science Vision Exercise was undertaken in 2014. 

The next Mega Science Vision-2035 (MSV-2035) Exercise has been undertaken by the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to the GOI.  The Year 2035 has been chosen keeping in view the timelines of similar exercises undertaken elsewhere in the world and the expected lifetime of utilization of major global facilities in which India is involved at the present time. The MSV-2035 Exercise has begun in the right earnest and will result in Road-Map Documents in six areas after widespread national stakeholder consultations. These six areas are: High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics, Astronomy & Astrophysics, Accelerator-based Science & Technology, Climate Research and Ecology & Environmental Science.
