Research Center, Invention and Innovation Center (RC-II) was established in 2021 under the Gandaki University Act-2019. The main aim of establishing RC-II was to support Gandaki University’s vision of academic excellence through a combinational approach of teaching and research to meet the growing demands of global context. Research is an integral part of academia that fosters scientific knowledge and awareness among the university graduates and faculty members. Research, invention and innovation are prime requirements for the development of a society, nation and the whole world. RC-II thus promotes research, invention and innovation at Gandaki University through facilitating funds and grants for the researchers (students and faculty members) and promoting collaborations with different national and international research centers, institutions, and agencies. Furthermore, RC-II promotes research-related infrastructure development by establishing a core research facility within the university.
