List of Research Institutes in Kerala
The scientific research is paving the way to the next wave of the development in a state or country's progress. Kerala is not lagging behind in the field of research. The first attempt to excel in research and setup a scientific research department or institute in Kerala can be traced back to 1937 when a department of research was opened in University of Kerala, then University of Travancore. Since, many such research institutes have been opened throughout the state and they are helping the state to grow.
