Frontiers In Materials for Technological Applications

CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology


CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT) was established on 13.04.1964 as Regional Research Laboratory, Bhubaneswar in the eastern part of India under the aegis of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi. It was renamed in 2007 with a renewed research focus and growth strategy to be a leader in the areas of mineral & material resource engineering. The institute has expertise in conducting basic research and technology oriented programs in a wide range of subjects to address the R&D problems of mining, mineral and materials industries and ensure their sustainable development. For the last one decade, the main thrust of R&D at CSIR-IMMT has been to empower Indian industries to meet the challenges of globalization by providing advanced and zero waste process know-how and consultancy services for commercial exploitation of natural resources through the public-private-partnership (PPP) approach. Today, CSIR-IMMT is the first choice for many minerals and materials based industries. It is also carving out a niche in processing of advanced materials for greater value addition and working on resource use efficiency of critical raw materials.

Frontiers in Materials for Technological Applications


Frontiers in Materials for Technological Applications (FIMTA) is an international conference on applications of materials in various fields. FIMTA was first held as an international webinar in 2020. FIMTA has been the premier meeting place for the researchers, developers and specialists to discuss new developments and results in the fields for materials and their potential application.

Bhubaneswar - The City of Temples

About Bhubaneswar

The capital of Odisha, Bhubaneswar is scenic, lively, green and clean, with a rich cultural life. Known for its temples, the city is a major centre of attraction for tourists from far and wide. It is probably the only city that enables an authentic overview of the stages of development of Hindu temple architecture. It is the place where temple building activities of Odishan style flowered from its very inception to its fullest culmination extending over a period of one thousand years. Today Bhubaneswar is an embodiment of its dashing modernity and glorious past. A favourite excursion from Bhubaneswar is a drive to Jagannath Temple at the pilgrimage town of Puri, also known for its beaches.
