The Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC) is a research and development unit of the Indian Department of Atomic Energy. The VECC, located in Kolkata, India, performs research in basic and applied nuclear sciences and development of latest accelerators. It has a collaboration with European Organization for Nuclear Research.The Centre houses a 224 cm cyclotron is the first of its kind in India which has been operational since 16 June 1977.It provides proton, deuteron, alpha particle and heavy ion beams of various energies to other institutions.The Centre consists of Superconducting Cyclotron Building, Cryogenic Plant Building, Regional Radiation Medicine Centre and Low Back Counting Laboratory which are built and commissioned by Directorate of Construction Services and Estate Management. The Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), one of the premier nuclear science and accelerator technology centres of India is a Constituent Institutes (CI) of Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), Mumbai.. A wide spectrum of research programmes on Accelerator Physics, Experimental and Theoretical Nuclear Physics, Physics with Rare Ion Beams & Nuclear Astrophysics, Hadronic Physics, Quark Gluon Plasma Physics, Material Science, Radio Chemistry, Nuclear Medicine, Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics etc are carried out at the Centre. VECC is also part of the International Collaboration at ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory & Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva. The Centre also conducts one year pre-doctoral orientation course in physics for HBNI students. Established in 1972, on Land grant pattern , Marathwada Agricultural University (MAU) Parbhani is one of the four Agril. universities in state of Maharashtra. Except some industrialization around Aurangabad and Nanded, the entire region has rural setting. The objectives of the University are : Education in agriculture & Allied Sci.,Undertake Research based on regional needs and facilitate Technology transfer etc. MAU is one of four Agril. Universities in the State of Maharashtra. Prior to original Maharashtra Agricultural University, it was established on May 18, 1972 to fulfil the regional aspirations of agrarian growth. It is entrusted with the responsibilities to pro- vide education in agriculture and allied fields, undertake research and facilitate technology transfer in Marathwada region of Maharashtra. The first college of Agriculture was established in this region at Parbhani in 1956 by Hyderabad State Govern- ment just before State reorganization.
It provides education in agriculture, allied sciences and humanities ,research base to improve the productivity of important agri-horticulture, livestock, fisheries and agri-allied activities of Marathwada region,develop appropriate plans for conservation of natural resources and sustainable use,undertake and guide extension education programmes, first line transfer of technology, extend services of training, conduct demonstrations and develop appropriate communication network. Standardize technologies for crop production, protection, harvesting, marketing, post-harvest utilization as also for livestock, fisheries and allied agro-communities for improving the living status of farmers, farm workers and Women of Marathwada. Provide the necessary production support of nucleus, breeders and foundation seed of important crops of the region and also generate revenue through large farms for sustainable growth of the University.
The following is the list of articles by scholars from Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Agricultural University that are published in OMICS International journals.
