The CDEIS is a research organization with worldwide activities and interests. Its purpose is to develop network of researchers working in the areas of development process and policy making in the emerging economies. The Centre will focus on comparative studies that unravel the effects of science and technology flows between these countries and those that developed earlier.

The Centre is engaged in conducting research studies in the areas of national innovation system and innovation policies, organizes Conferences and workshops as well as field surveys and training programmes. The CDEIS invites well known scholars from India and abroad as visiting Professors/fellows and has also started invited lecture series with a aim of enhancing and strengthening the knowledge and research base of the faculty.
